Andrea Pirlo insists he has no regrets about staying with Milan last summer and turning down the chance to move to Chelsea.
The Premiership leaders wanted to sign the Italy international as part of their new-look line-up following the arrival of former Rossoneri boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Pirlo, who has 64 caps for Italy, has admitted he was tempted to join the Stamford Bridge outfit.
However, after deciding to stay he has backed his decision and now hopes to see out his career with the Italian outfit.
“Do I regret not following Ancelotti to Chelsea? When you make a decision, it is necessary to see it through,” he told Le Gazzetta dello Sport.
“At first, I wanted to join Ancelotti, it was strange not to see him in the locker room. But then you get used to the situation.
“Leonardo is going well and we are with him. There’s no nostalgia.
“Could I close my career at AC Milan? I hope so. I have a contract until 2011 and I hope to stay beyond this deadline.”
