After the retirement of Paolo Maldini, it was Massimo Ambrosini who had the honor to become Milan's first choice captain, and it's likely the midfielder will remain a symbol of the team for some time to come.
The 32-year-old has
penned a contract extension to 2011 today, although an agreement had been in
place for a while.
"The agreement for
the contract extension had been found some time ago, but my signature hadn't
come yet for practical reasons," he told the club's official website AcMilan.com.
"I'm very happy
about the contract, it means you will have to endure me for a while
'Ambro' also came back on
the derby against Inter, which the Rossoneri lost 4-0, "Football is made

self-confidence. We need more games to see how strong we are, so far we've had
"The Livorno match?
It's too early to call it a turning point, but it's an important match to
recover from this bad defeat."
Ambrosini has been at
Milan since 1995, spending only the 1997-98 season at Vicenza on loan.
