Kevin-Prince Boateng has admitted that the manner of his exit from AC Milan remains an "open wound" for him and says that the club's current predicament brings him to tears.
The Ghana international surprisingly left San Siro for Schalke last summer but says that he remains a huge fan of the Rossoneri, revealing that it pains him to see the Serie A side currently languishing in 10th place in the standings.
"Milan for me is still an open wound," he told Chi. "I watch all the games on TV and it brings me to tears to see their position in the standings.
"I wrote [new Milan coach Clarence] Seedorf a good luck message and I still hear from my former team-mates."
Boateng remains confident, though, that Seedorf can turn Milan's season around, not least because of star striker Mario Balotelli.
"He is so strong that when he eventually takes full awareness of his ability, he will be the best in the world," the attacking midfielder enthused.
