Duarte: “I will eat grass if needed, Romagnoli is great”

By Isak Möller -

Leo Duarte joined Bennacer and Leao during today’s press conference at Milanello, speaking about his new adventure with the Rossoneri, having left Brazil. 

On the competition: “Milan have quality defenders. If I have to eat grass here to conquer a place I will do it. It will be a healthy fight and whoever is better off will play.”

On Romagnoli: “He is a great player, I followed him in Brazil a bit. He is helping me a lot with the position. I hope to adapt to improve my contribution.”

On adapting: “I got out of Brazilian football and it’s definitely different, especially on a tactical level. I still need a few days to adapt to the club and the coach’s ideas. I want to learn the language and learn more about Giampaolo’s game”.

At the time of the call: “I was shopping with my wife when I received the call from Maldini, my father is a fan of Paolo and we are proud of that. I want to make history with this club.”

On the arrival at Milan: “I’m here and I’m very happy. My father has always told me about it and now it is good to be here. I’m very proud to be here.”
