With seemingly every appearance he makes Pierre Kalulu justifies why the AC Milan management decided to pursue him so aggressively.
As MilanNews reports, the 20-year-old is proving to be up to the task and when called upon he has not yet disappointed despite his lack of experience, and Kalulu even earned the accolade of man of the match in yesterday’s penalty shootout win over Torino.
After the initial skepticism towards him, Kalulu continues to show that he can play both right-back and centre-back to a more than adequate standard in Italy, and the large margins for improvement are evident.
Milan paid just €500k to sign him from Lyon and once again the Rossoneri scouting department has proven to be effective, because just eight appearances later he already appears to be worth much more than what he was paid six months ago.
Kalulu represents a big regret for Lyon, to the extent that their fans have berated president Jean Michel Aulas and the coach Rudi Garcia for letting a young talent like Pierre leave too easily.
Meanwhile, Paolo Maldini and all of Milan are enjoying the player, who is yet another proof of the solidity of the work of the entire management.
