thumbnail Hello,

New Milan defender Philippe Senderos talked about his first impressions of his new club.

It was not just the day of Andriy Shevchenko, today at Milanello. Swiss international defender Philippe Senderos joined the Rossoneri on loan from Arsenal a few days ago and today he was officially presented as a new Milan player along with the Ukrainian star, who has also joined on loan from Chelsea.

"I am very happy to have arrived at Milan," he reiterated, "who have given me the possibility to measure myself with Serie A. I quickly understood that here the players take more care of the tactical aspect, whereas in England there's more attention to the athletic side. This means I will have to improve tactically to be able to compete at high levels here."

On the organisation of the Rossoneri's club structure, Senderos said: "From the first moment it was clear to me Milan are really a top-class club, more than Arsenal. I hope to do well and to stay here for a long time."

The 23-year-old, who made 64 appearences for Arsenal in five years with the Gunners, will wear the number 24 shirt this season at Milan.
