Ambrosini: You'll Have To Endure Me For A While Longer

AC Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini commented on his contract extension.
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

"I'm very happy about the contract, it means you will have to endure me for a while longer."

'Ambro' also came back on the derby against Inter, which the Rossoneri lost 4-0, "Football is made of episodes and in the derby they all went against us. This team needs to gain self-confidence. We need more games to see how strong we are, so far we've had just two.

"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.
