Monza defender Danilo D’Ambrosio would have loved to end his career at Inter Milan. However, he could do little about the club’s decision to release him.
The Italian joined the Nerazzurri in January 2014 after making a name for himself at Torino. He proved to be a loyal servant to the cause through thick and thin.
The 35-year-old showcased his versatility during his time at the Giuseppe Meazza by featuring in various roles, including fullback, wingback, and centre-back.
However, D’Ambrosio ended up bidding everyone at Appiano Gentile farewell when his contract expired at the end of last season.
The player makes it clear that leaving Inter wasn’t his decision. On the contrary, he had dreamed of ending his career at the club, but the management seemingly had other plans.
“I dreamed of ending my career at Inter, it’s true, but in life, you have to accept other people’s decisions,” noted the experienced defender in his interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews.
“The important thing is not to have remorses. I had always given my all for Inter and this is the most important thing.”
After leaving the Beneamata, D’Ambrosio sealed a free transfer to Monza where has cemented himself as a pillar at the back.

The Biancorossi will host Simone Inzaghi’s men on Saturday night in what will be a remarkable occasion for the veteran.
“It will be a special match, filled with emotions. But once the referee blows the whistle, I’ll cast all feelings towards Inter aside and focus solely on Monza.
“Inter are a great team. I know almost all of them. It’s an incredible squad, so we’ll have to face them as a unit like we did against our previous opponents.”
Finally, D’Ambrosio weighed in on the tight Scudetto race between Inter and Juventus, expecting it to go to the wire.
“They’re both feeling the pressure. They are two very strong teams aiming to go all the way.
“They’re both having excellent campaigns. I think the run between March and April will be decisive. Whoever maintains his nerves will win it.”
