OFFICIAL: Milan Release Massimo Ambrosini After 18 Years

Club’s captain to leave for free…

Milan have confirmed that veteran skipper Massimo Ambrosini will not be offered a new deal and will leave on a free transfer.

The 36-year-old joined the Rossoneri from Cesena way back in 1995 and has gone on to make more than 300 appearances for the Serie A giants.

Several clubs in the MLS are also said to be interested in bringing the Italian international to the United States, but Ambrosini’s agent,  Moreno Roggi, has revealed that heading across the Atlantic, or retirement, are options for his client.

“Massimo wants to continue to play,” Roggi told the Calciomercato.

“His preference would be overseas clubs, but if an offer did come in from an Italian side, we would not ignore it completely. At this moment we are in talks with West Ham, while we have already ruled out MLS.”

“However, I believe that Milan could have dealt with the situation better after 18 years together,” the representative said.

Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani told the club’s official website: “I’m really sorry to say goodbye to Ambrosini. It’s a decision that sees me emotionally involved.”

During his time at the San Siro he won two Champions League and four Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia, two European Super Cups and one World Club Cup. The former Milan captain also won 35 caps in a nine-year international career with Italy.

    • It all comes to an end one day… All we can do is thank him and probably continue seeing him warming the bench at the Viola.
      Anyway, thank you for sharing your opinion, dear Rossonera – great to see yet another female fan besides me 😀


      • I know, right? And on top of that I have to fight all the trash talk on Facebook 😉 so many Milan haters, it’s unbelievable.


      • Haha let them hate – that is all they can do 🙂
        All of a sudden, every single person on the planet is a football expert – in fact they don’t even know how to spell Dirk Kuyt’s last name right 😀
