Menez: I'm happy at AC Milan
The versatile winger has been linked with Liverpool in recent weeks but the Rossoneri’s top scorer is settled at San Siro
Jeremy Menez has no desire to leave AC Milan, despite rumours linking him with a move away from the struggling Serie A side, and is hoping that his fine club form will earn him a France recall.
Liverpool have emerged a possible suitor for the 28-year-old winger, who has scored 16 goals in 33 league matches this term, after being regularly utilised by Rossoneri coach Filippo Inzaghi in a more central attacking position.
However, the French forward insists that he remains fully committed to a club with whom he signed a three-year contract upon joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
“I am happy here at Milan,” Menez told the club’s official television channel. “The relationship with my team-mates is brilliant, we have a great group, it’s just a shame about the results.
“On a personal level, I think that I’ve had a good season, but of course I could have done better and I hope that I can do more next season.
“You can always improve in a lot of areas, I feel very happy here, even if I’ve heard things that I do not like, but that’s a part of football.
“I will try to give even more come next season.”
Menez, who was left out of the France squad for last year’s World Cup, hasn’t represented his country since October 2013.
However, the former Roma man has been one of the few bright sparks in an otherwise disappointing season for Milan, who currently sit 11th in Serie A with just two rounds of the season remaining, and admitted that forcing his way back into the France set-up has been one of the key factors in his resurgence.
“I came here to also get back into the national team,” Menez added. “I try my best for Milan above all, but also for the national team.
“The European Championship is taking place next year and I want to be there.”
