Montolivo bitter over Milan exit

Riccardo Montolivo says he leaves Milan as ‘a wounded man’ after failing to make a single appearance for the club last season.

Montolivo was dropped by Gennaro Gattuso for the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign, and the midfielder will depart Milan once his contract expires at the end of this month.

“Seven seasons with this glorious jersey… four years with the captain’s armband,” he wrote on Instagram.

Riccardo Montolivo says he leaves Milan as ‘a wounded man’ after failing to make a single appearance for the club last season.

Montolivo was dropped by Gennaro Gattuso for the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign, and the midfielder will depart Milan once his contract expires at the end of this month.

“Seven seasons with this glorious jersey… four years with the captain’s armband,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Then… They took away the armband and I didn’t say a word… I didn’t get a single minute on the field and didn’t say a word…

“I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye at my stadium and I didn’t say a word. All this breath I’ve spared, I’m using it now to shout ‘thank you’ to the Rossoneri fans.

“Thank you from a captain and a wounded man, but someone who will keep their head held high, aware that they’ve always carried out their professional duties in every area.

“The wounds heal, the love for this shirt remains forever… Forza Milan.”

The 34-year-old joined the Rossoneri from Fiorentina on a free transfer after Euro 2012 and ends his spell at San Siro with 158 appearances, 10 goals, 15 assists and a Supercoppa.

Poi…Mi hanno tolto la fascia e non ho fiatato… non ho potuto fare 1 solo minuto in campo e non ho fiatato…non ho avuto la possibilità di salutarvi nel mio stadio e non ho fiatato. Tutto questo fiato risparmiato lo uso per urlare GRAZIE TIFOSI ROSSONERI, grazie da un Capitano e un uomo ferito, ma che continuerà ad andare a testa alta, consapevole di aver fatto sempre ed in ogni ambito il proprio dovere da professionista. Le ferite si cicatrizzano, l’amore per la maglia rimane per sempre…FORZA MILAN
