GdS: Cutrone returns to face his beloved Milan – his struggles since leaving

By Oliver Fisher -

There are always interesting sub-plots to every game, but the return of Patrick Cutrone to San Siro to face his beloved AC Milan is certainly one of the best ahead of tomorrow night’s game.

La Gazzetta dello Sport recall how Cutrone, when he was younger, used to literally sleep with an AC Milan ball and he screamed the names of his idols on the pitch after every goal, namely Inzaghi, Shevchenko and Kakà.

Every time Cutrone looks at his arm he sees the number 63 tattooed on him which was his old number at Milan, as well as the date of his debut: 21 May 2017, during Milan’s 3-0 win over Bologna.

He scored more than one hundred goals in the youth academies with the Rossoneri and he scored 18 goals in the 2017-18 season under Vincenzo Montella and Gennaro Gattuso. Now he is at Empoli where he has 2 goals in 21 games, offering fluctuating performance after a few bad seasons at Valencia, Wolves and Fiorentina.

The Cutrone of Milan has unfortunately never been seen again therefore, but there will still be something strange for him about returning to San Siro as an opponent, even if he already did so against Inter with Fiorentina and Empoli.

The memories of Cutro are still there: the decisive goal in the Coppa Italia derby and the many goals in vital situations, but the hope is that he does not come back to bite the team that he loved and still loves.

  1. Cutrone 2 goal for Empoli then . AC Milan 4 Empoli 2 . Win win solution and fair result for both cutrone and AC Milan . Weka weka weka

  2. What I will always remember about this kid, is the passion he brings in every game. He always seemed energized even when he emerged from the bench. I still sympathize that he should go. Until now.

  3. Oh Patrick, as a Wolverhampton Wanderers supporter I so want you to get your mojo back. Wolves fans are so sad that things have not worked out. I hope and pray that you can turn things around. Good luck.

    1. I was sad when he left milan but it was soothed a bit as he joined wolves a team i liked since the steve bull days of the early 90ies. Anyways a shame it didnt work out there and that he has had some rough years afterwards. He is still a young player so would be surprised if we doesnt see his previous form at some point.

  4. He was so promising. And he loved AC Milan, always motivated and hardworking.
    We lost him because of Higuain. I still hate we went with those zebra outcasts Bonucci and Higuain and sold our promising boys to pay mercenary salaries.
    I hope Cutrone finds his game. Maybe we see him again shining in red-and-black one day.
