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.”

He is much better than Calabria in attack. I thought he was pretty good at defense too, before his first injury. I hope he gets his groove back. Imagine him on the right and Theo on the left with a coach who knows how to use wingers. Possibly a system like 3-5-2 would be amazing. Look at Inzaghi’s Lazio and Conte’s Inter. Such a thrill to watch. It would work in Serie A, but maybe would not work in Champions league.

Conte’s inter is not a thrill to watch? I mean both their games so far was pretty much lame.
