Patrick Cutrone was happy with his two goals but said winning was all that mattered last night.
For the first time since 1930/31, a striker in his first season as a professional, managed to score 10 goals in Serie A. This striker is Patrick Cutrone, who yesterday against Fiorentina netted twice.
With the help of Cutrone’s goals, Milan won 5-1 and ended the season in 6th place. Patrick, 20-year-old, finished it as the club’s top scorer with 18 goals in all competitions to his name.
“Personally, it has been an unforgettable season,” he told MilanTV after the game. “I managed to score 10 goals and I had been joking with my father about it for a while. All my goals are amazing to me, but it was just important to win, and we showed that united we can achieve great things.”
Speaking to Sky, he added: “I gave my maximum efforts in training to put the coach in difficulty. The goals? We conceded at the beginning, but we were good at reacting, it wasn’t easy as we played for sixth place. There is some regret for some matches, but the important thing was to win on Sunday to get sixth and we did it. Dedications? To my family and to my mum who had a birthday.”
The rumours are that Milan will be looking for another striker in the summer, but it’s certain that Cutrone will be staying and in the coming days he is expected to sign a contract renewal.
