Huntelaar blasts Real Madrid conduct
Wednesday 12 August 2009
AC Milan new boy Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has hit out at his treatment by former club Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old Dutchman spent a mere six months at the Bernabeu before being allowed to leave, seeming set to join Stuttgart before the Rossoneri moved in.
Huntelaar told AS: "Those in power at Real did not behave in the way that club deserves. They surprisingly told me my new team would be Stuttgart.
"Those decisions irritated me, but thanks to my agent I was able to stay calm.
"During the first few months I was fine, but things started getting worse right after that.
"They did not take me into consideration and they made me feel useless. These things hurt, but I have a strong mind and I resisted."
Juventus coach Ciro Ferrara has praised Denmark international Christian Poulsen and told the midfielder that he has secured a future with the club.
Twenty-nine-year-old Poulsen had been expected to leave Juve this summer, having been linked with the likes of Fulham, Liverpool and Fenerbahce.
However, after Cristiano Zanetti left Turin to join Fiorentina, Ferrara has placed renewed faith in the Scandinavian.
He confirmed: "Cristiano Zanetti was given the chance to join Fiorentina and secure a new contract.
"But we have enough cover, especially as Poulsen will now stay.
"He has worked hard in training and worked seriously, to the point when I complimented him for his professionalism during our retreat in Pinzolo."
Lokomotiv Moscow goalkeeper Ivan Pelizzoli is hoping to seal a return to Italy with either Fiorentina or Palermo.
The 28-year-old Italy international moved to Russia in January 2007, but has grown unsettled after slipping down the pecking order with Lokomotiv.
He told Stadio News: "Fiorentina and Palermo have spoken to my agent, who is trying to get me a club in Italy. Their interest is real.
"However, there is nothing more than that at the minute, as there have been no concrete offers from either club.
"My contract expires in December 2010, the problem is that I'm not playing.
"I'm actually watching games from the stands and that is why I want to leave."
