Calabria: “My goal was spontaneous; don’t start Maldini comparisons”

By Fred Ilondo -

Davide Calabria described his goal as ‘spontaneous’ as he netted the second in Milan’s 2-0 win over Roma.

The youngster bagged his first professional goal with a neat chip over Alisson, following Nikola Kalinic’s through ball.

“My teammates complimented me at the end of the game. I’ll have to buy them all dinner!” Calabria told Mediaset Premium and Sky Sport Italia.

“I found myself there in front of Alisson and the chip was just spontaneous. Things are going so well at the moment, it helps confidence.

“We are all going through a great period of form. It was an excellent performance tonight and we are happy to have brought home the three points.

“Gattuso made us understand from the first day what it means to wear this jersey. We are working with great intensity and have to continue along this path.

“The winning mentality that Gattuso brings is incredible, as he focuses on every detail. He is passing that mentality on to us now.

“Every day he tells me that I have the mind of a 40-year-old and the body of one too, as I have to stop often in training!”

The Italian also insists that he does not want to be compared to any Milan legend, despite his current form.

“I grew up watching Paolo Maldini, but don’t anybody dare start making comparisons.”
