Jose Mauri: 'Empoli right choice'

Jose Mauri has officially joined Empoli on loan and explained why he had to leave Milan “in order to play.”

The midfielder was a free agent after the collapse of Parma, but struggled to get any playing time at San Siro.

This evening Empoli announced he has completed the season-long loan deal.

“It is the desire to play that took me to Empoli and it’s the right choice, because I need to play,” Jose Mauri told Sky Sport Italia.

“It is always disappointing to say goodbye to people you worked with for a year, but I think it’s just a ‘see you soon.’

“My objective is to play, do well and have a more important role next year at Milan.”
