Raveyre reflects on time at Milan so far and insists Primavera ‘can do something really big’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s Primavera side are gearing up for a very important season finale, and goalkeeper Noah Raveyre has claimed that there is a family feeling around the squad.

Having arrived on a free transfer from Saint-Etienne during the 2023 summer transfer window, Raveyre signed a contract with the Rossoneri until 30 June 2028, being immediately put in the Primavera.

Milan tried to sign him as early as last January (with a small compensation fee to Saint-Etienne) but his presence in the first team discouraged the French club from selling, though he did eventually arrive.

Raveyre was decisive in the Youth League win over Real Madrid last month too, making a great stop to deny Gonzalo and then another to thwart De Llanos, before saving Yanez’s spot kick during the shootout as Ignazio Abate’s men went through.

Today a battle against Juventus awaits and Raveyre spoke to Milan TV as part of the build-up for the game, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

Talk to us about the penalty shootout heroics against Braga and Real Madrid in the Youth League…

“Before the match I felt good, we worked well with the team. We knew that Braga and Real Madrid were strong. During the match we played well, during the penalties I spoke to the coach for a bit and then I went to goal wanting to show that the team is a family. I went with the right conviction and saved, and then we won.”

How has life in Italy been so far?

“When I arrived I didn’t speak Italian. I was alone and it was a little difficult. Then slowly I learned the language and how to work in Italy, which is different. When I played I wanted to show that I was ready.”

What are the responsibilities of a modern goalkeeper?

“For me a goalkeeper must be someone calm, who gives serenity, it is a different role from the others. When you play with your team-mates you want to help the team in decisive moments with your serenity. A calm and serene goalkeeper transmits positive energy.”

Is the work different in Italy?

“We work hard and well. When I arrived I worked with the coach and I saw that the goalkeeper works a lot. I learned the Italian way of doing exercises, I also went to train with the first team a few times with Maignan, he is also French.

“I talked to him a bit, I like how he plays, he’s a fantastic goalkeeper. I learned how to move between the posts. When I arrived I was a bit rigid and the coach asked me to be more ‘loose’. We worked hard and hard and little by little I understood what he wanted to tell me.

“Even technically with the ball I was a bit crazy, I always wanted to play fast and the coach asked me to be a bit calmer. I also saw the others, I worked and I learned.”

An important season finale awaits…

“We have to think game after game, little by little. We have Juve and then 10 more games. We have to work together, for me the team is a family. I arrived here alone and found a family. Now we have Juve, Samp, the Youth League…

“We work calmly game after game, I am convinced that we will do great things because we have a very quality team. We can do something really big, both in the Youth League and in the league.”

  1. Great talent, hopefully he can grow to be our no.1 in the future

    Maybe Maignan can give him some pointers and playing him regularly in the u23 teams… he can be great.
