AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati insists that leaving the club this summer was never in his plans.

AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati has insisted that he did not think about leaving the club in the summer.

The 37-year-old was linked with a move away from the San Siro at the start of the season following the arrival of Diego Lopez from Real Madrid.

However, veteran shot-stopper Abbiati is happy to have remained with the Rossoneri for the 2014-15 campaign.

"I remained here because I am a Milan fan," he told Sky Sport Italia. "After many years here, I couldn't see myself in another jersey, even if there was the possibility to play more. In August I wanted to show that I was prepared to be part of the team and not only think about myself."

Abbiati has made five appearances for Milan so far this season.
