Abbiati has two more Milan dreams

Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati says he has two targets before he decides to hang up his gloves for good.

Speaking to Studio Sport during the international break, the custodian maintains that he’s still hungry for honours with the Diavolo.

“I want to win the Champions League again with Milan,” he stated. “I also want to help the club get their second star before I retire.”

The Rossoneri have one star on their shirt, but a second will be added when they transform their 18 League titles into 20 Scudetti.

Abbiati, 34, joined the Italian giants in 1998 from Monza and he’s again the first choice after loan spells at Juventus, Torino and Atletico Madrid in the past.

However, the former Italian international has had an inconsistent start to the season in terms of his own form.

“I’m not somebody who just gives up,” he added. “I’ve always taken responsibility and I’m always the first to admit my errors.

“The truth is that I didn’t start last season too well either and the mistake I made at Juventus was pretty big.

“Fortunately I’m a cool kind of guy, sensible and I have a family who stay close to me during the difficult moments.

“I would give myself a low six out of 10 for what I have done so far this term.”
