Flamini feels part of Milan

Mathieu Flamini has revealed he finally feels part of Milan after two years at the club, although Max Allegri's predecessor Leonardo has come under criticism.

The 27-year-old has made eight appearances so far this season and appears to have benefited from Allegri's decision to use three essentially holding midfielders in his side.

Interviewed in Il Corriere della Sera, Flamini said: "Let's say that the first year was one of transition even if I played more than 35 games while last year Leonardo didn't give me the chance to give the team a hand and show my qualities.

"Now instead I feel inside the team, even if my season started late because of an injury. Now I am 100 per cent. I think you have seen as much."

Asked if he regrets leaving Arsenal, Flamini said: "Never. I moved to one of the biggest clubs in the world. I had the chance to play with legends like Maldini, Shevchenko and Kaka. I made a big jump in quality.

"Every morning I wake up thinking about the Scudetto. And also the Champions League. This year the Final is in London. I want to be there."
