With the sale of two of their most influential players, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva during the summer, the Rossoneri have struggled to find any momentum and their stuttering start to the Serie A season has seen them manage to only pick up a measly seven points from their first seven games.

This has seen certain section of their fans turn their back on the team, with Milan's heirarchy being heavily criticized for the way they conducted the club's transfer business during the summer.

However, Ambrosini has suggested that real supporters would never turn on their own team and the fans who had stood by the club throughout this difficult time.

"You have to make a difference between the paying public and those who come to every game," Ambrosini was quoted as saying by the official AC Milan website.

"Behind the goal has always been full and we really feel the support of those hard-core supporters who have never given up on us."

Despite seeing his former team-mates Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro Nesta and Gianluca Zambrotta depart the club during the summer, Ambrosini revealed that thoughts of leaving the club had never crossed his mind.

"It never entered my head," Ambrosini added. 

"In fact it was my heart that ruled my head even though I knew it would be somewhat of a different season ahead. 

"I knew we would have difficulties but what makes life so wonderful is dealing with problems."

The 35-year-old also spoke in glowing terms about the positive atmosphere at the club and hinted at staying on with the club after hanging up his boots.

"The structure within the club promotes a sense of belonging," the former Cesena player explained.

"I cannot say what it is like at other clubs but all I know is that everyone who has played here has said that there is a family atmosphere and all I can say is that as a club it is very well organized in every area.

"I would like to train the youngster but I will keep all doors open. We will see but I would definitely like to remain within the environment of this club."

Milan will travel to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Lazio in their next Serie A fixture.
