AC Milan defender Pierre Kalulu has reflected on his two favourites memories from last season, and revealed some other interesting bits of information.
Kalulu arrived at Milan in the summer of 2019 having not made a senior appearance for Lyon and after finding opportunities hard to come by at first, he seized the chances that came his way and is now a bedrock of Milan’s project moving forward.
He and Fikayo Tomori formed an exceptional partnership in the second half of last season, one that conceded just two goals in the final 11 games of the league campaign, with nine clean sheets in that stretch helping to end an 11-year title drought.
Milan decided to do a question and answer session with Tomori and Kalulu based on what fans had asked on social media. SempreMilan.it transcribed the responses of the Frenchman.

“Everything is fine. We are working well. It is important to be here to get to know each other even better off the pitch.”
