Mesbah: “Proud to have joined Milan”

66

DJAMEL MESBAH is happy to come to the Italian giants and hopes to be integrated quickly.

Milan’s latest signing Mesbah put pen to paper last night at the headquarters in via Turati and is officially tied to the club from the fashion capital of Europe until 2016, and he will reportedly earn €500,000 a year.

Milan also bid goodbye to Taye Taiwo, who is set to sign a six-month loan deal with Premier League side Queens Park Rangers. Mesbah is coming to take the place of the Nigerian, who failed to impress.

Pato ruled out for 3-4 weeks
Taiwo edges closer to Milan exit

I’m proud and pleased to have signed with Milan. I’m here with a lot of humility and a desire to grow. It was quite special coming to the Milanello sports centre and all my team mates have great to me. I hope to get integrated as quick as possible and make myself available for selection,” told Mesbah to the Milan Channel on Friday, after training for the first time with his new teammates at training center Milanello.

“I’ve scored a few goals in my career but mostly when I played in midfield,” the Algerian, who will be wearing shirt No. 15, added. “At Lecce I was always played at the back but I also like to get into the other half of the pitch. A memory from Lecce 3-4 Milan? The first half was amazing, but then my new team mates played like they know how and there was nothing to be done. It was an unforgettable game in my career.”

Along with Mesbah, Thiago Silva, Clarence Seedorf, Alexander Merkel, Stephan El Shaarawy trained normally. Philippe Mexes has the flu and may miss Novara and join Milan’s long list of unavailable players.

Darn, i totally forgot about Nesta’s yellow card, but i thought he already served it in the TIM cup, i’m not sure though but i do know that Mexes has the flu so there’s a risk he won’t be available in time.

Wellcome Home Mesbah! Hope you will adapt like Nocerino.

I like you formatn bobsaget, but Nesta won’t be available due to yellow card, so I think Bonera will fill the position, even though we don’t want him. He’s d only available.

LOL Guys.. I just heard Tevez bailed on PSG AGAIN… he said NO… when PSG and City had agreed yet again. I think we may in the end get Tevez. I mean I heard Paris is nice, but this guy must really not want to go to France. Apparently Tevez only wants Milan and no other. As far as Giovinco… a nice player… maybe we can get him on loan. As far as Mesbah… give the poor guy a chance. I see people judge Nocerino… please give Mesbah a chance. If he doesn’t work out… it’s not a huge loss.… Read more »

I THINK EL SHAARAWY CAN BE OUR “NEW SIGNIG” in the second part of the season becasue what ive seen from him so far is amazing.
he defenatly was more impressive and alive in the game againts Novara than pato was.

There is no agreement with Psg Milan, January 20, 2012 One step from signing the Argentine has stopped his agent after meeting with Leonardo in Paris Carlitos Tevez, 27 years old. Afp one step since signing, Carlitos Tevez has blasted the deal with Paris Saint Germain. The Argentine striker has blocked his agent, Kia Joorabchian, at the time of making the agreement with Leonardo. Sources close to the leadership have confirmed that the negotiation is skipped, signifying that “there is no agreement, and perhaps there will never be”. SEEMS LIKE TEVEZ WANTS… Read more »

Yes. Exactly. Tevez only wants Milan. And we need him. Tevez knows that. Ca*ssano may or may not play again this season… Pato is out a month… maybe more (possibly longer then the 3-4 weeks from what I’m hearing)…

We need Tevez.

Tevez wants nothing to do with PSG. He’s refused flat out.

Rumors of a Giovinco loan! I dunno what you guys feel but this guy is so goood.
Here’s the link to the rumor: http://www.footballpress.net/?action=read&idsel=97374

and a video link to prove how dope this guy is : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H31V2o1Z6-Y

He is fast creative and an amazing set piece taker. Small but who cares when he can strike a ball like he does.

He’s a pretty good solid player… but his lack of height and strength is concerning. However, I would not be oppose to loan with option to redeem.

Juve fans love Giovinco still… and it would please me to see us sign him lol. Maybe even on a cheap transfer

exactly! With Ibra (and maybe Balotelli in 3 years or so) we have our tall presence in the box. What we have been lacking is a player able to weave through opposition. Robinho can but we all know how off and on he can be.

As far as his strength he almost has, note ALMOST lol, a messi like ability to ride tackles as seen in a few of those clips. i love the idea. always nice to have a good Italian influence in the side as well.

You reap what you sow,if you sow moderate you reap moderate and if you sow mediocre you will reap mediocre,The seria A and Coppa Italian is in contention but let’s forget the Champions league till we get a new owner,how did Milan become like this?When was the last time we beat one of the top teams in Europe?

when was the last time we faced a top team in Europe with a full squad? And what is the new owner going to do? Even if he comes, by next season he won’t be able to spend his money to buy players for the club anyway because of ffp. And when did we ever sow mediocre?

Well welcome Mesbah and I heard that the Berlusconi family wants to sell AC Milan to some Russians so hope so. Maybe we will get some decent players instead of players at the end of their carrier or contracts or on loan.
Who did we get this year, where’s Mr X and Mr Y and now Mesbah is a great player he’s good but that’s about it.

@Silas,u are a true milan fan. This team can’t beat big teams in europe cos it is full of mediocre players. Some of the players won’t even start at palermo or cesena.

LIKE WHO? Which players wouldnt start at palermo or cesena. Nocerino? OHHHHHH Wait… he always started at Palermo. In fact he led that team by example… who else? Boateng? He’s been great. Abate? Asides from the mistake against Inter, he’s been fantastic. Who are the mediocres?

Ibra? Well… we all know he’s world clas-s. Many teams would want Ibra. Robinho? He’s fantastic. He’s not great finisher. But still great player. Aquilani? He had a great start to the season.. hope he comes back soon!

I cant think of these mysterious mediocres. Even Bonera has had a good season.

Milan is buying nice players… and bringing back a star in the making Merkel is a great move. Milan isn’t going to be sold to non-Italians. The Berlusconi family is just fine controlling it. Russians? Forget it. That’s an unstable source of funds. Berlusconi is no longer involve in politics… so… he’ll be more involved in his businesses! the only partner we may have is… Read more »

From ibra,robinho,boateng,aquilani,nocerino to mesbah,who will be next,maybe iličić,we are so pathetic,galliani and silvio only looking for cheap and free players,with that politic we cant dreaming about CL.Look bayern,man united,barca,real,they have top players and still looking for new players,because you cant just wait,Yes and i know,that we dont have money from TV rights lihe others,but this is not exuse.In serie are so many players who are very good players and not too expensive.Balzaretti,the best LB in italy,then asamoah very good left midfielder,also nainggolan,then montolivo,national player,who can play everywhere in midfield.

It’s not just about buying good players, you know. It’s also about buying the kind of players that would fit into our formation and style of play. balzaretti is old, montolivo is most likely coming in the summer, we might have to enter a bidding war with juve over nainggolan (so we’ll end up overpaying for him), as for asamoah, buying him from udinese would weaken serie a in europe, and we’ll fall even further behind bundesliga.
