Ivan Strinić’s Milan career started today and he’s said that even though he didn’t have much time to rest, he’s ready to fight for his place in the starting XI.

Today began the new chapter in the career of Ivan Strinić as the left-back arrived to training center Milanello for his first day as a Red and Black player.

“I’m feeling great. I am in one of the top clubs in the world and I’m really happy to be here. Milan are famous all over the world, especially in Croatia,” Strinić told MilanTV.

“The World Cup? We are happy with the second place, unfortunately we didn’t come first but we must all be happy [with what we did], us players and the Croatian fans. I haven’t had much time to recharge the batteries, 10-15 days, not a lot, but I’m ready to play a good season.

“Maurizio Sarri and Gennaro Gattuso? Sarri is a great manager. He has a great personality. I haven’t had much time to speak with Gattuso but I think we will get on well. Here at Milan, there are Ricardo Rodriguez and other fullbacks; I’m ready to fight to play from the start, but we’ll see what happens because the season is long and we all have to be ready to play a good season.

“I’m at Milan and Šime Vrsaljko is at Inter? We hope to have a good season, to win and to win the derby!” The derby is on Matchday 9, but first Milan have to go through Genoa, Napoli and Roma.

nice interview, hopefully your experience will help the backline.
Hope Milan also get Bernard as he is a free agent and believe he will help us going forward, as scoring goals is our only real downfall.

But so far the transfer market has been great and we have managed to get some real good signing with the FFP restraints.

This dude was awesome during the World Cup. This is really an amazing signing, how did Milan manage to pull this through. With higuain and caldara coming I think this season is gonna be good.

Good luck Strinic, all the best for you, and if you fight and get the starting spot on the left, then you’ll probably have earned it! Buona fortuna:)

if I am gattuso ,I will pick this guy to RR,strinic is more tough and offers to the team defensively but with RR he offers little going forward and always lacks confidence defensively.And operation Bernard must commence

I don’t see Milan winning the league this season but I see us playing real football and ending the season in a better position than last season
