On choosing Milan: “I’m growing up and Milan are the perfect team to learn even more and work well.”

On Giampaolo: “He asked me to come and this means a lot to me. I love it, I’ll give it my best. I know my qualities and I know I can learn and improve.”

Accepting Milan move: “I was playing in the AFCONs, but when Milan called me I didn’t think about it too much. I knew they wanted me and this is the most important thing.”

On Giampaolo asking him to join: “I think he asked me to come because he likes how I play and I’m good for his style of play.”
