Colombo discusses his Milan ‘dream’ and the desire to ‘work, learn and improve’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan loanee Lorenzo Colombo has revealed that he is not looking too far ahead when it comes to his future and is focusing on the current season with SPAL.

Colombo was sent out on loan at the start of the season, joining Serie B side SPAL to help in their quest for promotion glory. It now looks as if that might be out of reach, and after a red-hot start to life in Ferrara the goals have dried up a bit.

Milan are following the situation of the 19-year-old with great interest and will be happy with the progress he made earlier in the season when he scored six goals in the first 15 league games.

That has lead to speculation about a potential future in the squad from 2022-23 onwards but the striker has given an interview to Tuttosport during which he made it clear what his focus is.

“I started strong, while now it’s a bit like this, but I’m working hard to get back to giving my contribution to the team. I am a 2002-class, these moments are part of the path and make us grow, even if obviously the goals are missing,” he said (via

“At the moment I think about SPAL, obviously Milan is a dream which for now, however, remains aside. I don’t think about it so much and I am convinced that if I deserve it I will probably come. The important things now are to work, learn and improve. Milan will decide the future, for now I prefer not to make plans.”
