GdS: Defender determined to stay at Milan and seek redemption

By Oliver Fisher -

Defender Ivan Strinic is set to stay at AC Milan this summer regardless of his playing time prospects, a report claims.

After an impressive World Cup campaign with Croatia last year, the Rossoneri decided to take a punt on Strinic and signed him on a free from Sampdoria.

However, the 32-year-old spent the whole season out of action after a heart condition was discovered, meaning the player is yet to make a Serie A appearance for Milan.

The signing of Theo Hernandez from Real Madrid in a €20million deal meanwhile threatens to push Strinic even further down the pecking order despite Diego Laxalt’s seemingly imminent exit.

However, according to a report in Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Strinic is determined to stay with Milan and fight for a spot.

They claim that the left-back is ‘seeking redemption’ his unlucky 2018-19 season, and is set to stay with the Diavolo in order to do so.
