Chelsea winger Zhirkov: Daughter name no call to AC Milan!

Chelsea winger Yuri Zhirkov has explained why he's named his new daughter Milan.

Zhirkov admitted before moving to Chelsea that he marvelled at AC Milan and Barcelona rather than English football when he was a youngster, and he has named his newborn daughter Milan.

But he joked: "Now all I have to do is change my son's name to Milan and (AC Milan owner Silvio) Berlusconi will finally understand. I am joking, but all over the internet it will say that Zhirkov wants to go to AC Milan."
