AC Milan says it will give refunds to disgruntled fans with season tickets following the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

The club made the offer in a statement on Monday after fans were left fuming at the star duo being sold, some even staging a mock funeral outside Milan headquarters.

A lawsuit has been filed arguing that some fans bought season tickets on the presumption the two players would be at the club.

The club says the offer was made because of “the need for style and love of the club towards its supporters and independent of any legal analysis,” adding that “the lawsuit is without any foundation.” 

Milan icons Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf, Gennaro Gattuso and Filippo Inzaghi also left the club after last season.
