Rafael Leão talked to the press at the end of the win over Bologna, suggesting he’s not thinking of becoming a penalty taker on this team.

Milan returned to winning today, beating Bologna 2-1 with goals from Ante Rebić (26′) and Franck Kessié (55′ pk).

Despite not scoring, Leão – who this week dropped his first rap album – was one of the best players on the pitch for the Rossoneri, playing first in the role behind the striker and then as a left winger.

“We put in great intensity and desire to win, there was a small drop in the last ten minutes, but football is like this, you suffer. I think we deserved the victory,” he told Sky Italia.

“If I’ve thought about taking penalty kicks? No, we have important footballers, Ibra, Kessié, Theo. There are many footballers who can score, but the victory is the most important thing, not the goal scorers.

“The Scudetto? We are Milan, we always want to win. We have a long path ahead, but we focus on one game at time.

“My rap career and my first album? Football is the first thing, I’ve always wanted to get to this level. After that, when I have some time off, I can sing some songs.”
