Zaglebie Lubin defender Kacper Chodyna has revealed that he rejected the chance to become an AC Milan player in the past.
The 21-year-old is a right-back who plays in the Polish top flight and this season has marked a breakthrough of sorts for him, with 20 Ekstraklasa appearances including two goals and an assist.
Now, some background has emerged on his past. When the player was 10 years old, in fact, he was invited by the Rossoneri to attend a trial and do some training sessions. Club scouts had already spotted the Polish talent at a very young age and decided to get a closer look at him.
Chodyna spoke to to grandhotelcalciomercato (via MilanLive) about how things went, confirming that the experience was indeed very beneficial for him but at that age moving to Italy was not a realistic possibility.
“At Milan it was a wonderful experience, because not all 10 year olds have the opportunity to go to train in a team like that and abroad. I was impressed with the facilities and training. Such an experience will remain with you throughout your life and stimulate you to improve. But then the idea of being away from my family led me to return to Poland and give up this opportunity,” he said.
His contract with Zaglebie Lubin expires in June 2022 and this opens up transfer opportunities for him already in the next summer transfer market.
