MANCHESTER, England – AC Milan midfielder Mark van Bommel has announced he will return to PSV Eindhoven at the end of the season.
Van Bommel joined Milan in January 2011 and signed a one-year extension to his deal last summer.
With tears in his eyes on Saturday, the Netherlands captain says he is leaving ''because I have to respect the wishes of my family ... I have to return to Holland.''
Van Bommel, who spent seven seasons at PSV, says he will return to the Dutch club ''for a year, maybe two, then I will become a coach.''
Referring to Milan as ''like a family'' Van Bommel also added he would like to coach the Serie A giant in the future.
The 35-year-old Van Bommel becomes the fourth Milan player to confirm he is leaving the club this week after Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso and Filippo Inzaghi.
