The Rossoneri have announced they have released Australian goalkeeper Kalac after four years with the club. Kalac, who didn’t impressed Leonardo when played this pre-season, has been kicked away, when there are less than 60 appearances in his resume with AC Milan.

Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has told Milan Channel on Wednesday: “What I want to emphasize is that he [Roma] takes the place of a great character, important for the dressing room, always happy and positive which Kalac has always been for us.”

The official note at AC Milan official site regarding to Kalac’s release reads: “A.C. Milan communicate that the working relationship with the footballer Zeljko Kalac has been mutually terminated. To thank him for what he showed during his experience with the Rossoneri, Milan wish Kalac all the best for the future.”

The decision of release the veteran goalkeeper came along the decision to buy another goalkeeper, with two ‘keepers under injury, the Rossoneri cannot afford themselves playing just with Marco Storari, who said on Wednesday that he’s not afraid to compete Roma.

The official note at AC Milan official site regarding to Roma’s acquisition reads: “A.C. Milan also communicated they have bought Flavio Roma, who has signed a contract until 30 June 2010, from A.S. Monaco.”

Roma had passes medical at Milan, and officially signed over one-year contract, until 30 June 2010. Roma, who had celebrated 35 on June 21, played 247 games with Monaco and was at six Italian clubs, not include AC Milan. It’s still unclear how much Milan paid to Monaco for the ‘keeper.

Reports suggest that Kalac could still join a Serie A team, when the spotlight is turning to A.S Roma, who expressed interest in the 36-years-old. However returning to Australia is not something that consider to unthinkable for Kalac.

THE ROSSONERI BLOG WISH PLANY OF SUCCESS FOR KALAC IN THE FUTURE. THE BLOG IS ALSO WOULD LIKE TO BLESS ROMA FOR HIS ENTERING TO THE CLUB – MAY GOD HELP HIM TO BLOCK THE NET!
