In the summer, AC Milan are expected to start the youth revolution at the club, with Ralf Rangnick at the helm of it all. Therefore, a lot more space will be given to youngsters, which could help a player like Matteo Gabbia.
Just before the Coronavirus outbreak brought everything to a halt, the 20-year-old made four appearances for the Rossoneri. With Simon Kjaer and Mateo Musacchio injured, he was forced to step up and surprised many by performing at a consistent level.
In an interview with Rai Sport, as cited by MilanNews.it, the defender was asked about various topics including the positive period he experienced. Certainly, he showed that he’s up to the task and that he can fight for a starting spot.
“Certainly the period before the stop was very important for me, it was a start to football that counts. I can’t consider myself an untouchable starter in the defence right now. I will try to do my best in every training session.
“That way, I can win the manager’s confidence and make as many appearances as possible until the end of the season, ” he began.
Gabbia was also asked about his future with the Rossoneri, amid rumours linking him with loan move this summer. However, he didn’t give much away on that front, focused on what happens now and not then.
“In football, I think that the results are a fundamental part. As a player, I will try to focus only on this and I will not think about what will come next,” he concluded.
