Ambrosini leaves Fiorentina

Massimo Ambrosini has announced that he will leave Fiorentina this summer.

The veteran midfielder joined La Viola last summer after bringing down the curtain on his lengthy career with AC Milan.

Ambrosini admitted he was keen to extend his contract with Fiorentina, but holds no grudges against the club after his short spell.

The 36-year-old said: "My adventure with Fiorentina ends here. I thank Florence, it has been a fantastic year.

"I have never hid I would have liked to continue playing here, but the club told me that they have made their decision.

"I wish my team-mates well. I remain tied to this club and to president Andrea Della Valle who always allowed me to feel at home."
