Taiwo eager to prove worth

Taye Taiwo is disappointed that he has so far been unable to prove himself worthy of the Milan jersey.

The 26-year-old moved to San Siro in the summer on a Bosman after his contract with French outfit Marseille expired.

However, the left-back has failed to break into the first team plans of boss Massimiliano Allegri. He’s played just four games in Serie A and four in the Champions League.

“He’s saddened that he hasn’t been able to demonstrate how much he is worth,” representative Fabio Parisi told Radio Sportiva.

“A lot of clubs wanted him and he chose Milan.”

The defender has been linked with a January exit given his lack of playing time and Genoa are the latest club paired with his signature.

“There has never been any kind of negotiation with Genoa,” Parisi continued. “Let’s see what solutions are possible.

“At the moment there is nothing concrete. Taye just wants to play.”
