M’Baye Niang has stated he’s learned from his mistakes and is determined to listen to new boss Vincenzo Montella.

Niang played 67 minutes in Milan’s first friendly match on this pre-season as the Rossoneri defeated Bordeaux 2-1 thanks to two goals from Suso Fernández.

“We have worked a lot with the ball in training and we showed on Saturday what we had practiced,” Niang told Sky Italia after the final whistle at Stade Armandie.

“I am very happy, from the first day that I arrived I spoke with the coach and from that I know what I have to do to become a champion, just as I am determined to listen to the coach. I have to be good on and off the field, I realized the mistakes I’ve made and I won’t repeat them.

“The future? I have never talked about the market; I went straight to Milan after my vacation. I’m happy here and I will stay at Milan.”

Well done but pls we wa clean sheet


I think it would be better for him to say “ill try my best to improve and to be a champion by learning/practising and staying humble” rather than “i know how to be a champion”


It’s more than enough if you say: “I know how NOT to be a Balotelli”
