FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Fiorentina has signed former AC Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini to a one-year contract.

The Tuscan club made the announcement Thursday after Milan decided not to renew Ambrosini’s contract last month.

Financial details were not disclosed.

A midfielder, the 36-year-old Ambrosini had been Milan’s captain since Paolo Maldini retired in 2009. He spent 17 seasons with Milan, winning four Italian league titles and two Champions League trophies.

Ambrosini has also made 35 appearances for Italy’s national team.

Fiorentina finished fourth in Serie A last season, two points behind Milan.
