Mario Giuffredi has explained why Andrea Conti stayed at Milan this past summer, and said ‘the important thing, like for horses at the racetrack, is to be fist in the finish line, not start first’.
Conti was linked with a move away from Milan during the summer transfer mercato but in the end he chose to stay and fight for a place in the starting XI.
“It’s true, there were opportunities. But then how could he have looked himself in the mirror?” agent Mario Giuffredi, who represents the right back, told TMW.
“Leaving Milan meant going away defeated and I’ve always told Andrea that his goal must be to return to his levels in order to be able, in the future, to look back without regrets. We still don’t know if he’s a Milan quality player or not, we can’t say because he hasn’t been tested yet due to his injuries.
“But now he is fine, he’s behind Calabria but the important thing, like for horses at the racetrack, is to be fist in the finish line, not start first.”
