Krzysztof Piatek has admitted that even he has been surprised by his start to life as an AC Milan player.
The Poland international has amassed six competitive goals in just five appearances for the club, and scored a crucial brace on Saturday night as the Rossoneri secured a vital win at Atalanta.
“I always believe in myself and trust that I will score many goals, but I admit six in five games is more than I expected,” he told DAZN and Milan TV.
Piatek discussed his first goal on the night; a stunning volley which beat Berat Djimsiti to level the game at 1-1.

“I was being marked closely, but I knew the ball would come into the box sooner or later, so I made the movement to ensure I got there first.
“I am happy with the two goals today and want to keep going like this. I am a striker, so I’d like to score in every game.”
