Agent Pimenta believes Zeroli is ‘ready’ for permanent first team stay

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of AC Milan midfielder Kevin Zeroli believes that her client is very much ready to become a full-time member of the first team.

As the captain of the Primavera team, Zeroli officially made his debut in Serie A this season coming on in the match against Sassuolo on December 30 which was won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Christian Pulisic.

The academy product entered the field towards the end of the match in place of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and it was an emotional moment for the Italian who grew up a fan of the club in Busto Arsizio which is about 35km from Milano.

Since then though he has not been seen much, largely because Milan now have a fully fit midfield department barring Tommaso Pobega who continues to recover from surgery.

Zeroli’s agent Pimenta spoke during the show ‘Cronache di spogliatoio’ and was asked about what kind of a future Zeroli has, with her comments relayed by MilanNews.

“He can express his talent in a team that is close to his home, he hasn’t had to detach himself too much from his family. This allows you to grow in the right way,” she said.

“Now he is no longer a boy, he became a man overnight and he was able to do it with serenity. To play in the first team you have to be a man. Kevin is ready.”

Pimenta is regarded as one of the first female football ‘super-agents’ having worked under Mino Raiola before inheriting all of his clients after his death in 2022.

  1. Erm, no…. He might be ready for the U23, but not for the first team.

    If he’s good, her job as an agent was to find him a Serie B team or one of the relegating Serie A teams and make a loan happen during the winter transfer. Also let’s see how he and Milan do in the Uefa Youth League…

    In any case, I’m sure that if we don’t get an U23 team next year, we’ll get a better idea of Zeroli during the summer friendlies and management will go from there.
