Milan midfielder Manuel Locatelli has revealed that scoring the winner against Juventus earlier in the season was “a dream”.
Locatelli’s wonderful strike earned Milan a 1-0 win against the Bianconeri in October.
The 19-year-old has been a key part of the first-team squad at Milan since his breakthrough, and he urged other young players to follow their dreams.
“Scoring against Juventus was one of the biggest thrills of my life,” he told a school (via Tuttosport).

“I scored against Buffon, who until the other day I used to play on PlayStation. It was really hard to imagine that goal and, above all, score it.
“I find it strange to talk in school. I was only here last year. I’ve realised a dream. Set your goals because one day you’ll succeed [in meeting them].
“I don’t feel like I’ve absolutely succeeded yet because I’m only 19 and I do everything in each training session.”
