Brahim Diaz insists he has the ‘personality’ to wear the No.10 and is back at his ‘best condition’

By Oliver Fisher -

Brahim Diaz has insisted that he has what it takes to overcome a recent tough patch of form and prove that he deserves the shirt number he wears at AC Milan.

The Spaniard joined Milan in the summer of 2020 on an initial one-year loan deal from Real Madrid and became a real key contributor towards the business end of the season, scoring important goals such as the one to take the lead in the decisive 3-0 victory over Juventus.

His end to the season meant Milan wanted him back and they secured his return on a two-year loan from Los Blancos, though this time there is an option to buy in favour of the Rossoneri and a buy-back in favour of the LaLiga giants, as per multiple reports.

Brahim gave an interview to SportMediaset in which he talked about the Rossoneri’s current moment leading up to the derby on Saturday 5 February after the international break, and his own particular patch of form.

“Now I can go back to my best condition to help my team-mates with goals, with assists and above all with work for the team. I like to have leadership and responsibility. Already playing for Milan is a pride for the club’s history,” he said (via MilanNews).

As part of his return to Milan he took the number 10 shirt previously occupied by Hakan Calhanoglu, and he claims that he is not feeling the weight of the number.

“It increases the responsibilities and brings great pressure, but I have the personality to wear it. I want to do great things with this shirt and with this team.”

Finally, the 22-year-old also spoke about his targets for the season and the objectives for the team too.

“There are still many matches, there is a long way to go, we want to win the derby against Inter and we will do our best to do so. There are many teams in the running for the Scudetto, and we are one of them. We will try to fight until the end of the season.”

  1. He’s been spending too much time with Ibra.

    Ibra always had skill and determination to back his oversized personality though. Brahim is not showing much of either atm.

    1. Basically he misses everything that a numer 10 should have : final touch and goal instinct….
      In my opinion he should leave and play futsal, he’s to light to have a number 10 role.

  2. I would try Rebic or Ibra at cam , and both good with there backs to the goal, what do we have to lose, they would draw a little more attention from defenders, Diaz gets pushed off the ball too easily. Only by a win against Inter and direct intervention from heaven do we have a chance at the scudetto. Couple more losses and bye bye to CL as well, especially as Juve has “manned up”
