Alessio Cerci explains choosing AC Milan over Inter

Alessio Cerci has explained choosing AC Milan over Inter Milan last week.

Cerci left Atletico Madrid for Milan after a difficult six months in Madrid.

"If I'm here then I'm here for a reason. I'm here at Milan, and I'm happy to be here, there's nothing else to say.

"At Inter there would be competition too, it's the same everywhere.

"The two clubs in Milan wanted me, and that made me proud. I'm a respectful guy, I'm not going to say here whether [Inter Coach Roberto] Mancini called me or not.

"What was said [with Milan] will remain between us. The fact they rate me highly, and they wanted me in the summer too was important.

"In football that's always the most important thing, that you have the esteem of the club, the Coach, the doctors - everyone.

"I have a Coach [Filippo Inzaghi] who is crazy about me, that just doesn't happen in football today. I'm in the best position I could possibly be to express myself to the fullest. I thank the Coach for his beautiful words, now I have to perform."
