Lucas Paquetá has spoken after the win over Feronikeli, saying ‘I am very happy to be back wearing the Milan shirt’.
Milan have just one more pre-season game left and last night they finally got their first win, beating Feronikeli 2-0.
Marco Giampaolo used basically his entire squad in that game as he made 9 changes on half time, also bringing on Lucas Paquetá for his first pre-season game. The Brazilian showed excellent things in the mezz’ala role, and Giampaolo said that this is where he sees the 22-year-old playing.
“I’ve very happy to be back playing in a Milan shirt. Hopefully, it’s going to be a great year for us and I hope I have a great year, too, so I can help the team,” he told MilanTV. “My position? I’m ready to do whatever the coach needs of me. I will play where he wants me to and will do my best. New players? Technically skilled players are always helpful to a team and make it more fun to play. We’re enjoying ourselves on the pitch but are always aware of the responsibility on our shoulders to achieve victory.
“Leão? I do what I can to help him settle in, translating for him on and off the pitch. I can say that Rafael is a great player; I’m convinced he’ll help us out a lot.”
