After this afternoon's friendly between the first team and the Primavera, Philippe Mexes spoke to the gathered journalists. It was a chance to talk about his fitness as well as his future:

"I feel good, the international break will be useful for me to continue working. I need a bit of time to play. At the start of this afternoon's game, I found it a bit tough. But finally I can see some light at the end of the tunnel, thank goodness as I couldn't stand it being on the outside looking in. I need a couple of games to get back to 100%."

"The important thing for me is to be here at Milan. It wasn't the happiest of summers even though the birth of daughter brought some smiles to my face. It wasn't easy being here training twice a day and hearing all the market rumors. I never asked to leave the club. Now I'm back and I want to show the fans that I'm here to stay. I just want to work on getting back as quickly as possible."
