It has certainly been a very positive few months for AC Milan defender Davide Calabria, and the last few days might just have been the best.
MilanNews writes how Calabria is now the official vice captain of the Rossoneri after the farewell of Gianluigi Donnarumma, behind Alessio Romagnoli, a status that he has certainly earned given his path from being a Primavera prospect to the number one right-back via a few battles.
He has gone from being a sellable player for the management to now being an immovable part of a Champions League level side. The call-up from Roberto Mancini came on the same weekend as his first goal of the season against Atalanta, and it doesn’t get much better than that.
Back in July, Calabria decided to renew his contract until 2025, and for this reason he can be considered the captain of the future especially given Romagnoli might not remain in the Rossoneri. Calabria has played 158 games until this point and yet still shows signs of growth, so Milan’s right side are in safe hands.
