The talented Italian Under-21 international forward feels the signing of Jon Dahl Tomasson is a good one, even though it decreases his prospects of obtaining regular first team football.
"I know that there is great competition for places and it will be hard work," he told the official Milan website.
"But I have spoken with both the club and the coach, and they have relayed their faith in me.
"I am happy that we will soon be getting back to training, especially because I can feel that there is a great deal of enthusiasm around the club.
"Personally, I think that I ended the last campaign well, and I'll look to continue where I left off.
"We are a strong side in all departments and have added to the squad with Jon Dahl Tomasson and Clarence Seedorf.
"They will be excellent signings and I don't see that many clubs have strengthened more than us."
