Flamini claims flaunt backfired

15 April 2013 03:46

AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini said his red card in Sunday's draw with Napoli was born out of a desire to earn the home fans' approval.

The 28-year-old endured a mixed night at San Siro, with his first-half goal later cancelled out by a moment of madness which saw the former Arsenal man red-carded for a reckless tackle on Juan Zuniga.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Flamini offered his apologies but stressed his over-enthusiastic tackle was not for want to hurt.

"I'm happy about scoring the goal. I had so much joy in scoring my second goal in a row, but I am disappointed about my red card," he told reporters.

"I wanted to show that I am a player full of enthusiasm who deserves to wear the Milan shirt.

"It is a mistake to leave the team with 10 men, but I had a great desire and anger can happen in football occasionally."

The Frenchman also fuelled speculation regarding his future by refusing to rule out a move to French giants Marseille.

"My future? I just said never say never about the possibility of moving to Marseille," he added.
