CM: Camarda nets Youth League brace to cap incredible week – Milan’s plan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s Primavera side began their UEFA Youth League campaign with a 4-0 rout of Newcastle United, and Francesco Camarda was among the protagonists.

As recall, Camarda scored his first from a penalty kick that he won and converted, then the second came from an excellent Scotti pass that found his run behind the defence and he finished confidently.

Camarda became the youngest Italian (at just 15 years and 195 days old) to have scored a goal in the Youth League, a record that was previously held by Fabrizio Caligara who scored for Juventus against Lyon at 16 years and 190 days.

The jewel of the Rossoneri youth sector completed an incredible week in terms of scoring because only three days ago he scored to seal a win against Sassuolo in the league, becoming the first 2008-born player to score in the Primavera.

Just seven days ago, Camarda scored for Italy’s Under 17 team against Germany, netting a brace en route to a 4-2 win. Now, his name is also starting to circulate among the circles of big clubs such as Borussia Dortmund.

It will therefore be one of the main missions of Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada to speak with his agent Giuseppe Riso, outline the plan for the future and try agree an extension.

  1. kid seems special, must develop him well and actually give him chances in a short while rather than waiting until he’s 25 and has been loaned 8 times like we normally do

      1. Of course he shouldn’t be playing now but I agree he does need to be given chances soon.

        And the only way he’ll get chances is if he leave space in the front line which means not signing too many strikers (and we’ve signed at least 1 striker every season for at least the last 15 seasons).

        We signed two strikers this transfer window. And one of those (Jovic) seems clearly intended as a short term fix and the other (Okafor) is probably not going to get many games, so they’ll both be shipped on again soon. And Giroud will need to retire soon.

        So we can expect to sign another 3-6 strikers in the next 2-4 years just as this guy is trying to break into the first team.

        This is what happened to Comi, Ganz, Petagna, Cutrone, and now Colombo, all of whom broke records at youth team (not as many as this kid).

        I have seen too many players at this stage fail and the chaos this summer doesn’t fill me with confidence.

  2. He needs to spend as much time as possible in the academy, don’t rush him like we did with Mastour, he’s both Milan and Italy’s next great hope.
