Filippo Inzaghi and Gennaro Gattuso both announced their departures from AC Milan on Friday, following in the footsteps of Alessandro Nesta, who revealed that he was leaving the Serie A club on Thursday.  

“The first and only thing that I want you to know forever is this: I played and won for us,” striker Inzaghi, 38, wrote in an emotional letter to fans on the Milan website (  

  “Playing without sharing emotions means nothing, but you and I, we, we did everything together. We were always on the same wavelength, and no-one will ever take that away from us.”  

  Midfielder Gattuso, 34, said he planned to go away.  

  “I’m going away for a year, this is goodbye. The moment has come to move myself away, but I don’t know yet where I will go,” he said.  

  The pair won two Serie A titles and two Champions League crowns over more than a decade at the club, and both were World Cup winners with Italy in 2006.  

  The departures will necessitate some rebuilding work at Milan, who lost their Serie A title to Juventus last weekend.
