Rodriguez: I’ll play wherever the coach needs me

Ricardo Rodriguez has vowed to do all he can to help new club AC Milan reach the Champions League after completing his move from Wolfsburg.

The full-back’s move to Milan was rubber-stamped on Thursday after he joined the Serie A giants for a reported 17million euros on a four-year deal.

"I'm happy to be here and play for this great team," Rodriguez told MilanTV.

"I'm going to play anywhere on the field where the coach wants me to. In a back three or in a back four. I want to play and I'll do everything to show I'm worthy of this club.

"I can't wait to play in the Europa League. I will do my best. We also want to do well in Serie A and get back into the Champions League, we will do everything to play in it.

"I'm really happy to be here and eager to get to know my team-mates. There are many South American players, I'm sure we are going to get along."

"I admired many players who made history at Milan. I loved [Gennaro] Gattuso and also Ronaldinho. So many legends played here," he continued.

"I have already played at San Siro, it's incredible that it's going to be my home stadium and I get to play in such a beautiful stadium.

"I picked it [the number 68] because it's the year my mother was born."

The Switzerland international is the third player to join Milan since the April sale of the club to Chinese investors. Defensive midfielder Franck Kessie and defender Matteo Musacchio joined from Atalanta and Villarreal respectively earlier this month.
