Now I need to look forward, to the future, I have many experiences to try. My first goal for the national team was one of the best moments in my career, but I had a lot of positive experiences, unforgettable days and moments. Circumstances allowed a lot of players to debut against Lithuania, it was great to score on my debut and I’m really happy with everything. I also had really great moments last year at Milan, moments I will never forget.”

It’s a unique number at Milan, it’s a heavy number that comes with a lot of responsibility because of the importance of the Club and its colors. I’ll give my all for the fans, to be worthy of this great Club. I feel I can live up to the expectations, I love this Club and I’ll do my best for it. I’ve taken the 10 because I like the number and I’m aware of its importance at Milan It motivates and inspires me because at Milan it’s a really important number. I’ll give my all to show my talent and I’ll give my blood, sweat and tears for this great Club and I’ll fight to make it a great season.”

On Pioli: “Our success was thanks to Coach Pioli, he created a good team from the experienced players and young players who are growing. We have all learnt a lot from the coach, he taught me a lot last season, under his guidance, and we created a stable squad which had a good season. Now we must improve and, in the Coach’s hands, we certainly will and we’ll have a great season.”
On talking about Milan with Ancelotti: “With Ancelotti I talked about Milan, his heart is Rossonero, he really loves and cares about the Club.

On the Milan fans: “I can’t wait for the fans to be back at the stadium. It was incredible to see how close to the team they were last season, they always supported us, were always by our side. Their support was fundamental to us, they pushed us to give even more. Milan has fans all over the world and they are all incredible. With them at our side, we will give everything for them. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have their support.”
