Defender Danilo D’Ambrosio admits that he’s disappointed to have left Inter Milan, but says he bears no ill will.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInter1908, the 34-year-old also gave his thoughts on what he expects the Nerazzurri to look like during the upcoming season after an eventful transfer window.

D’Ambrosio has left Inter on a free transfer this summer.

Nine and a half years after he joined the Nerazzurri from Torino in, 2014, the Italian is on his way.

D’Ambrosio has left after making 285 appearances in an Inter shirt. He has won five trophies with the club, and been through no shortage of highs and lows with the club.

The 34-year-old’s contract ran out at the end of last month. There were talks to see if an extension could be agreed, but in the end that has not happened.

Now, Inter will go into next season without one of the most familiar faces in the squad from recent seasons.

D’Ambrosio has been linked with a prospective transfer to Lazio, although at the moment he is without club.

Wherever the veteran defender winds up, it may seem a little strange to see him wearing a shirt other than Inter’s.

D’Ambrosio admitted that “I’m disappointed that it’s over. But I don’t bear and ill will or feel angry.”

“As I said, I would have liked to end my career at Inter,” the defender added.

“But it wasn’t possible. Still, I don’t have any ill will about it.”

And regarding the summer transfer window, D’Ambrosio said that “It’s a different Inter, but they still have players like Lautaro, Barella, de Vrij. The core of the team is still there.”

He also predicted that “They will be able to convey a sense of belonging to the new arrivals.”
