Musacchio squashes unhappiness rumours: “Playing at San Siro is a dream come true”

By Oliver Fisher -

Mateo Musacchio has revealed that he is happy to be an AC Milan player and to live in Milano, insisting he wishes to remain with the Rossoneri.

The Argentine was one of the first names on the team sheet under Gennaro Gattuso last season and at the beginning of the current campaign, however he has fallen down the pecking order.

Matteo Gabbia and January signing Simon Kjaer appear to be ahead of Musacchio currently in the battle to partner Alessio Romagnoli, with no sign of that changing any time soon.

Last week, Musacchio’s agent gave a lengthy interview with MilanNews during which he expressed frustration at the Rossoneri’s treatment of his client, insisting the defender has struggled with the mental effects of having fallen down the pecking order.

However, Musacchio has answered several questions from fans in a Q&A session on Milan’s Instagram profile and revealed that he is happy at Milan, and his words were transcribed by MilanNews.
