Alessio Cerci feels he was treated unfairly at AC Milan after joining the club from Atletico Madrid on an 18-month loan deal in the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old was desperate to leave Atletico after struggling to adapt to life at the Vicente Calderon and had a number of options, including Milan and city rivals Inter.
He eventually opted to join the Rossoneri as they guaranteed him regular first-team action, only to end up on the bench under head coach Filippo Inzaghi, and Cerci has now criticised them for breaking their promises.
“I made the mistake to trust people. Several clubs wanted me, including Inter, but I eventually picked Milan because they gave me the guarantee that I would play all games,” Cerci told Tuttosport.
“This was never the case in the end. I never played more than two games in a row. There was no rotation and I was substituted more than any one else. They were not clear to me.
“I had not been playing much for three to four months and it was obvious that I needed game time and faith. I never got that.”
Despite his frustrations, Cerci is determined to win over his doubters and make an impact in 2015-16.
“I know that there is stiff competition for places, but I am second to none if I train well. I can challenge any attacker.
“I feel the confidence of the club now and I am enjoying a fine pre-season. I have great desire and determination.”
