Kakha Kaladze has ripped into Milan, accusing the club of turning coach Massimiliano Allegri against him after being ousted from the team.
The Georgian stopper has become marginal in Allegri's plans for the new season, and he believes the club's top brass have ordered punitive action after refusing transfers during the summer window.
And his torrent of fury is aimed at those pulling the strings behind the scenes, but he won't be roped into accepting the situation.
"Maybe people think I am no longer valid. Usually I don't speak with the press, but now I want the truth to be known," he told Il Corriere della Sera.
"When you stay quiet people think you are stupid and they think the voices that come out are real.
"I have never seen a coach that ousts a player after just four days. They told him that myself and [Marek] Jankulovski must not play together, it's not Allegri who is making the decisions.
"Milan's style no longer exists and I am ashamed for them."
