‘I feel very satisfied to complete this transfer to Milan’


SOKRATIS PAPASTATHOPOULOS has confirmed he will be playing for Milan next season.

The transfer of Papastathopoulos is not concluded yet, but the Greek 22-year-old center back has already spoken to La Gazzetta dello Sport about the transfer to Black & Red.

“My surname is too long so I put ‘Sokratis’ on my back. You can also call me ‘Papa’, like my friends do,” he said. “I am a central defender, but if necessary can also play right-back. No problem.

“I feel very satisfied to complete this transfer. I am looking forward to integrate, listen, learn and show people who I am. I will move to the city of Milan as I want to experience the city where I will play.

“I used to play as a striker when I was younger and scored lots of goals. But then slowly I begun to play towards the back, and now I’m a defender.”

“I admire and try to imitate [Paolo] Maldini, [Alessandro] Nesta and [Fabio] Cannavaro,” the Genoa man and U-21 Greece national team captain concluded.

The details of the transfer are still blurred, but it is expected to be official in hours or days.
