Pippo Inzaghi has rejected an offer from Siena, amongst other clubs, in order to continue his career at Milan.
Although he doesn’t feature heavily in the plans of boss Massimiliano Allegri, the veteran has opted to remain at San Siro.
“I’ve decided to stay,” the former Juventus forward, who moved to San Siro in 2001, told Milan Channel. “It was difficult for me to leave the world of Milan in the space of a few hours.
“I’ve received a lot of offers over the last few days and I thank everyone because it is nice to be wanted at the age of 38.
“I want to thank Siena in particular, their President and their directors as they did the impossible to try to sign me.”
Inzaghi, despite his lack of playing time, confirmed that he wanted to hang up his boots in the red and black shirt of the Diavolo.
“I only want Milan,” he continued. “My career here couldn’t finish like this. My last game will be in this jersey and I couldn’t leave.
“I thought about how much I would miss this environment and the fans in the Curva who still provide me with such emotion.
“The club have always had faith in me and they still do today.”
