During an Instagram live session with Sportitfootball, AC Milan Captain, Valentina Giacinti, revealed why she chose to join AC Milan over ACF Fiorentina.
Her quotes were transcribed by Milan News, and read as follows: “I am very superstitious and I believe in signs. I have a lucky red bracelet, and it is the reason why I chose to go to Milan.
“I was about to go to Florence to sign for Fiorentina when one of those children who sell bracelets put one on my wrist, and it’s an all-red one that I still wear. For me, it was a sign that I had made a dumb mistake and that I should not play for Fiorentina.
“So I went to the Tuscan city [to tell Fiorentina] that I had chosen Milan, despite the fact that everything was ready for my presentation [as a Viola player].
“Personally, I feel that sometimes, it’s fate that chooses you and at that moment, I knew what I had to do. Now, I’m AC Milan’s captain and the rest is history.”
