CHRISTIAN ABBIATI
"I thought I would get more emotional, but I kept it all in. I will keep thanking the fans, the club, President Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani for the rest of my life for all the wonderful moments I have enjoyed, with a host of great stars, we won everything. It’s a shame to say goodbye after a defeat like this. I wanted to thank the fans who waited to say goodbye to me. The save that will mean the most to me was the one in the derby in the Champions League in 2003 which we went on to win. Donnarumma doesn’t need me, he is a great lad, he has a sensible head on his shoulders. He has great abilities and he will keep performing well for many years. My role models were Maldini, Costacurta and Albertini and I still remember what they taught me. The mental approach is what will matter most for the final. It’s a one-off game and we can have our say, providing we don’t play with the attitude we showed tonight."

I doubt I will ever feel any sadness seeing another player retire, the last from the old guard

Nobody see a problem with not playing him in his last match?

That is kinda similar to maldini retirement.

Pigeon magic ?

08/09 Milan defence ball watched everything. Abbiati was immense over the years but shout-out to Scudetto '11 season and 12/13 - what a weapon! Great video

You should wait until at least 1st of July because the season isn't over yet and neither is his contract. He'll probably be offered a staff role after the season.
