Report: Lang confirms Club Brugge departure and Milan interest

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan target Noa Lang has confirmed that he will be leaving Club Brugge this summer and admitted the Rossoneri’s interest in him, a report claims.

Speaking during an interview with Het Laatse Nieuws in Belgium, Lang did not hold back when describing the apparent impact that he has had on the Belgian Jupiler Pro League during his time at Club Brugge.

“I’ve been heating up Belgian football. I’m telling you: when I’m gone, Belgium will miss me,” he said.

“Because I gave colour to your football. Next season you will be crying for a Noa Lang in the Jupiler Pro League again.”

The young Dutch striker has become known for his questionable and extremely confident attitude and should he end up at Milan next season, Stefano Pioli will do well to harness it.

The player made it clear that whilst he does not have an agreement with Milan at the moment but did not deny that the club are keen on signing him.

“I can’t deny that Milan are interested in signing me but it’s not that I have a personal agreement with them.”

Continuing the clear strong belief in his abilities, Lang discussed who will be his replacement in attack at Club Brugge and whether they will be able to cope with the pressure.

“With Nusa, the Club has my successor. I sometimes joke that he’s the only one who can take my number 10 after I leave.

“I don’t know who will get it, because you need broad shoulders. I’m glad I waited another year before leaving, because I’ve learned a lot. Now I’m ready.”

    1. Confident or too cocky? There’s a fine line. He hasn’t proven anything yet so therefore I’m leaning towards the latter – for now. Go ahead, prove me wrong!

  1. The boy sounds cocky as F and he’s not yet win a major trophy with Brugge. He could be a trouble in Milan dressing room.

    Just get De Ketelaere.

    1. Agreed, harmony in the dressing room is one of our biggest assets right now. The last thing we need is Balotelli 2.0.

  2. I like this sort of arrogance. It reminds me of Zlatan who once told Wenger that he doesn’t do auditions. It’s a mental thing even if it may be. Just a joke. Itst right for an attacker to think like this.

  3. Romain Faivre said the same thing last year and put up the same attitude, and a lot of fans here roasted the boy…… lol…, and many thought that the Milan management saw it as reason not to push any further with the signing.

    Funny how people here are calling this a joke now.

    1. Wrong. Milan had a private jet waiting for Faivre on deadline day in the summer. Brest took him off the market. Faivre had been talking to the press obviously aware of Milan’s interest. He skipped a game and Brest were annoyed that he showed lack of respect for the club, even if he wanted to leave.

      Faivre went to the press again and Milan decided to avoid him altogether in January. Faivre talks too much and his speeches are seen as disrespectful to the club.

      1. sounds like making excuses for Noa,….. He seems like he’s towing the same path. It’s being cocky at best, nothing else. Not saying he is is not talented though

  4. People are like he is cocky and the only reason we won the Serie A is because we had a person like that join a few years ago. You don’t win by being a snowflake, but by having players like this.

  5. Would be a great signing especially for the rumored fee of 22M? We have enough vets to keep him in line and Pioli has proved to be a master at developing young talent. Let’s do this
