Diaz ‘very happy’ after Samp win and says kiss on Milan badge was ‘from the heart’

By Isak Möller -

Brahim Diaz was one of the protagonists for AC Milan in their 5-1 trashing of Sampdoria earlier this evening. Indeed, the Spaniard sent a message to the Rossoneri management about his future. 

The No.10 played from start this evening and responded in style, assisting two goals and scoring one himself. He was behind almost everything for Milan and proved what he can do on a good night.

Speaking to Sky Italia after the game, as cited by MilanNews, Diaz shared his thoughts on the performance as well as his future. He was also asked if the arrival of Charles De Ketelaere enticed him to do even more.

A positive season for you…

“I’m happy on an individual level, of course this week has been so-so. We wanted to reach the final, but today we did what we had to do. We won and played well. Individually I’m very happy.”

Have you forgotten the Champions League knockout?

“The goal now is to reach the Champions League, we have shown that we are strong by reaching the semi-finals. We wanted to reach the final, but today’s match also helped us in view of the next Champions League.”

You have grown in the quality of your plays, what do you attribute this to?

“Thanks for your words. I’m young and I still have to grow up. I have to thank the coach, he worked well with everyone. I have to say thanks also to the team, we is always united. I know my qualities, I always give everything.”

The kiss on the shirt speaks for itself…

“It was to thank all the fans for this week. It was with the heart, I did it from the heart. I don’t know what to say about the future. I’m very happy, there are two games left and I want to give everything for this shirt.”

On the missed goal in the derby…

“I always want to score, I didn’t succeed on that occasion. But I always give everything for the team, of course I had to score. I regret what I did wrong the other day. But in football, there are always other opportunities.”

Did the arrival of De Ketelaere spur you on?

“I don’t know what to say. We are with him, that’s the important thing. We are united, we help everyone and we want to help him too. When there is competition everyone wants to give their best. I don’t want to talk about this because then maybe words that aren’t mine come out. If one day you want to come and see how we train you will see the quality of all the players.”

Diaz’s loan will expire at the end of the season and Milan are expected to sit down with Real Madrid and discuss a permanent transfer. It remains to be seen if the playmaker will be wearing the red and black shirt next season well.

  1. Performances under no pressure are worth virtually nothing.

    This game was the real Beahim.

    4 times a year he will get the space and time to play well.

  2. After that missing in match versus team play defensive . Let see his performance vs alegri full defend next match

  3. He kisses the badge, he knows that is the final goal for Milan. He will go to dortmund. He doesnt fit to seri A league who physically play football. Better go to another laliga club or bundesliga.

    Thanks bro !!

  4. Brahim Diaz Serie A stats last season.
    3 goals 3 assists

    This season.
    6 goals 7 assists

    Only the honest ones will notice the improvement.

    1. Improved? For sure. Improved enough? Nope. If we can get him for 5-10M€, then he might be worth it. But for 20-30M€? H*ll no! There are much better players with such price tag.

  5. from the last 3 spainish in milan only samu bit better then other 2 and of course he will play last 2 match cos he is pioli golden boy

    1. If he doesn’t play, suggest a better option that has been better than him, it’s as simple as that.

      Diaz is not who we want, he’s not good enough that’s true, but you can easily suggest a player to replace him in the last 2 matches, he’s Pioli golden boy because he’s the one delivering so far not consistently anyway, but if he removes Brahim in that position now who does he have, there’s no Bennacer.

      I wonder if someone of us do think before accusing Pioli, if he has a better option he will go for it and it’s crazy to bench his after his performance in the last match for CDK or Adli.
