Alessandro Florenzi has expressed his gratitude to the AC Milan management for making his initial loan from Roma into a permanent deal.
It was back on the first day of this month that Milan officially announced the permanent signing of Florenzi, who joined the club on an initial loan deal last summer from the Giallorossi, and the news was expected considering the Italian veteran’s performances this past season.
Florenzi played quite a lot for Milan in the 2021-22 season despite suffering from two knee injuries that needed minor surgery, and he impressed while on the pitch having been given a number of roles, including right winger, right-back and even left-back.
It’s not exactly a surprise, therefore, that the management wanted to keep him and all of his experience. Florenzi was interviewed by SportMediaset during Milan’s training camp in Austria, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
On the Scudetto: “It was a great emotion for everyone, the fans had been waiting for this moment for a long time. It was important for many of us, but now we have to turn the page to try to write other important pages for Milan.”
On being a now permanent Milan player: “I am grateful to Milan for what they have done for me. This club will always have the utmost respect from me on and off the pitch.”
On Yacine Adli: “Adli is a young prospect, he will be able to give us a great hand. He will have to put in mind what the coach wants and always give his best.”
