Cutrone hits out at Milan over exit: “Foreigners are preferred to us”

By Oliver Fisher -

Patrick Cutrone has lifted the lid more on his AC Milan exit, claiming the club prefer foreign players to those from Italy.

Cutrone departed his boyhood club earlier in the summer, moving to Premier League side Wolves.

They have a Europa League play-off tie against Torino on the horizon, and the 21-year-old has revealed he is settling in well with the Midlands club.

“My first impressions have been excellent,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia).

“I was received very well and I’ve already settled in. I didn’t like living in a hotel, so I’ve found a house where my best friend has been keeping me company.

“It’ll be tough against Torino. They’re a good team and there are several similarities between us and them: passionate fans, character, pride, a sense of belonging.”

Rafael Leao is expected to be Cutrone’s replacement at Milan, something which he feels is indicative of a narrative within Italia football.

“It’s always the same story: foreigners are preferred to us. For us twenty-somethings, it’s hard, but in any case I’d like to emphasise something: I’ll always be grateful to Milan for what they gave me.”
