Eintracht star Andre Silva reflects on a ‘difficult and mentally complicated’ time at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva has reflected upon his time with AC Milan, insisting it was the right decision to leave when he did.

Silva joined Milan from Porto in a big-money deal back in the summer of 2017, but after a fast start he never really kicked on, spending time on loan at Sevilla before moving to Eintracht on a two-year loan deal last summer.

The Portuguese striker scored 16 goals and registered five assists for the German side in 2019-20 across all competitions. Therefore, they were keen on locking him down and managed to reach an agreement with Milan for the transfer.

The Portuguese striker has offered a reflection upon his time with Milan which ended up being more brief than he probably hoped and imagined.

“At Milan things were not going well. I have lived through a difficult and mentally complicated year,” he said (via MilanLive).

“I was in the mood for something new and Eintracht was the right choice. Today I am a different and improved player, compared to that of Milan. I found myself and at the age of 24 I’m fine with myself.”
