Flamini: I'm Not Ungrateful + Senderos: Milan Are Worlds Best Team

AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini has denied falling out with Arsène Wenger after his departure from the club in July and also believes that he wasn’t ungrateful despite leaving on a free transfer to the Italian giants.

The France international, whose deal at the Emirates ran out this summer, passed a medical and agreed terms to stay at the San Siro until 2012.

After a magnificent Champions League performance ironically against AC Milan last season, the 24-year-old drew comparisons with hard-tackling midfielder Gennaro Gattuso.

Speaking to French daily Journal Du Dimanche, Flamini said:

“I’m not a player ungrateful. I have always respected my contracts. I wanted a new challenge. The train passes once and I did not want to stay ‘dockside’. In fact I do not regret it. There is no problem with Arsène Wenger. I know what I owe”

Milan president Adriano Galliani presented newly-signed Premier League pair Andrei Shevchenko and Gunners’ defender Philippe Senderos to the Italian press earlier today, with the Swiss international announcing his happiness at the season-long loan move.

“I am very happy to be here and happy to be given this chance by the club, I want to repay this trust on the pitch. Arsenal are a great team, but Milan are the best team in the world.

My first impression is very good, this is a great club and I want to stay here a long time. Compared to the English league, the players in Italy work harder.

The English league is more physical while the Italian one is more tactical, and personally I have to work hard to reach this level.” Senderos told Milan’s official site.

Philippe was unavailable for Milan’s 2-1 loss to Bologna due to injury, but Mathieu Flamini did start and put in an energetic display as the Italians lost early ground on close rivals Inter.

    He he he, yeah, best team in the world, and yet they lost to us and Bologna at home. Couldn't even get past Fiorentina in the league. The amount of over 30's they have is incredible. Rotflmao. Matt and Phill are off their heads.

    I've got no problems with Flamini. He was out of contract and had every right to leave. Hleb on the other hand was pathetic.

    WTF is with French players and their wierd comments. Flamini didn't want to stay dockside. I'm annoyed that he left but i'm over it now. His contract ws up and he chose not to renew it, fair enough.

    On Senderos, if he did actually say that word for word, then he really is a thick cunt. I for one was a big fan but Milan are the best in the world? Bullshit. Would the best team in the world be in the UEFA cup? No! Would the best team in the world have lost to a team that just got promoted? No! Milan may be a great team with fantastic history but they are definately not the best in the world. Maybe Phil just doesn't want to come back.

    isnt it a coincidence that as soon as senderos left we have managed to keep 2 clean sheets and score beatiful goals and play beatiful football like our old invincible squad
    senderos departure has warned all our players that players arent safe in aersenal and they can be sold which is probably why eboue has upped his performance

    Any truth on the Vieira story? Nothing in the papers and they usually jump on any story. Maybe they just fed up of second guessing on Arsenal and getting it wrong

    Senderos leaving has absolutely nothing to do with our performances. He hadn't even played yet. Our improved performances are due to Fabregas' return.

    Chris, as the transfer window closes, can you write an article on the hipocracy of football. I have heard that Real have criticised Chelsea on the Robinio Saga, in the same way Utd criticised Real on the Ronaldo saga, in the same way spurs criticised Uts on Berbatov, in the same way Crystal Palace criticised Spurs on whts his name…..the list goes on

    I don't see how claiming Milan are the best club, whilst insinuating we are not, could be deemed 'slagging us off'.

    Best of luck Phillipe.

    No faggots – Milan were the best team in the world. When they had Baresi, Papin, Weah, Albertini, Maldini, Tasotti, Rossi, Savicevic, Donadoni and many more.

    Those two cocksuckers are not even worthy of cleaning their fucking boots.

    This goes to show why we got rid of Senderos comments like that shows his level of inteligence. Good ridance. Flamini played RB for the second half today, Uefa cup, playing out of position looks like a good move already.

    Milan got two players who couldn't handle the eng prem. The only reason italian players train harder is because they spend all there time playing standing around posing. The italian league is shit, big phil should fit in.

    I agree with some
    of what you say but you cannot say Flamini can't handle the Prem. He was outstanding last season.

    By the way does anyone know if there's any truth in the Veloso to Spurs rumour? I would be pissed if they got the player I believe would be the best partner for Cesc.

    Laursen was one of Villa's best players last season, whilst Ablonglahor, Young and Barry stole the headlines.

    The only thing with Laursen is you always feel he has a mistake in him. Maybe he's used to the Premiership now though.

    I know those two players wanted to go but I think we missed them both.

    Senderos for his height and header clearance on set pieces. And Flam for his industry, contagious determination, endless running and clever tactical sense. I could see a natural captain in him … he could have become a legend at the club.

    Is he regular in the Milan line-up?
