Chivu admits 'sadness' over Inter Milan departure

Cristian Chivu has admitted sadness at bringing his Inter Milan career to an end.

The Romania defender has terminated his contract with Inter by mutual consent.

"It's part of life," Chivu said to the Inter Channel. "A journey is coming to an end, but a new life begins.

"That's the way I am looking at it. There are a thousand things I could say and I don't have the words to describe what I have experienced over the last seven years.

"All I can say is thank you to everyone. I have been given so much thanks to the work of the group and the club.

"The staff and the medical team had a great desire to do something, to create history.

"I have had such brilliant moments that I will take with me in my heart wherever I go."
