AC Milan have no regrets over Yoann Gourcuff sale

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists the Rossoneri do not regret their decision to sell Yoann Gourcuff to Bordeaux last summer.

The young French playmaker had a troubled first season at the San Siro before moving to Les Girondins on loan.

At the end of last term the French champions took advantage of a clause agreed in the deal with Milan and signed him permanently for a fee of €15 million.

"Milan believed in his talent and signed him for just €3 million," Galliani said to SkySport24. "Then we sold him for €15 million, but we still believed in him.

"I also talked with him before he decided to go to Bordeaux and he told me he was afraid of becoming a reserve at Milan. That is the real motive behind his transfer.

"This summer there is the World Cup and he wants to be called upon. In France he knows he will always play while with us there would have been plenty of competition.

"I have no regrets. Although I would have preferred it if he'd returned to us, I completely understand his choice.

"That is the end of the story. I am sorry, but for Milan it was a very good piece of business."
