Mexes - AC Milan

defender has insisted that he will remain at the next season while stating he wants to extend his current contract that expires in 2015.

The 32-year-old joined the Rossoneri from fellow Serie A rivals in 2011 and has largely been a permanent fixture in their defence during his three campaigns in Milan.

Recent reports had suggested he was set for an exit from the San Siro but Mexes played down those reports while speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“At Milan I’m fine,” Mexes stated.

“I’m proud of representing the club, I have a great desire to help it recover.

“I have not talked with anyone about anything, but I’d like to renew [my contract].”

Despite heavy defeats to  and Olympiakos, Mexes remains confident the Rossoneri are improving under new coach .

“I realise that it is a concept seemingly out of place but I say that we are on the right track.

“This is for one simple reason: we put the maximum effort into training, both individually as well to follow the instructions of the coach.

“The results are negative and it is disappointing because we’re talking about a team like Milan, a club that does not deserve this.

“Undoubtedly it is not normal to concede four goals in half an hour each game but we know where we need to improve.”

- My interest in Italian football began with the broadcasting of Football Italia in the early 90's, turning to infatuation with the Champions League victories of AC Milan, Paolo Maldini an all-time hero, and Juventus in 1994 and 1996. With no allegiance to any Italian side in particuar I have a strange fascination with Genoa since witnessing them beat my beloved Liverpool in the 1992 UEFA Cup. The last two decades following the reds have strangely seen frequent contests against Italian opposition. Also writing for thefootballmagazine.com, you can follow me on Twitter: @rabbitrabbiton
