Sassuolo striker Giacomo Raspadori has revealed that some of his friends who are AC Milan fans insulted him after his match-winning brace against the Rossoneri last season.
Milan fell to their fifth home league defeat of 2021 against Sassuolo towards the end of the season as super sub and Primavera product Raspadori was the hero for Sassuolo, causing havoc when he came on and scoring twice in a matter of minutes to turn the game on its head.
Today, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported that Raspadori – who has been linked to Inter in recent weeks, the team he grew up supporting as a child – is attracting interest from the Rossoneri who are determined to sign a young striker.
Raspadori spoke in an open letter on for ‘Cronache di Spogliatoio’ and he discussed the double scored against Milan at San Siro a couple of months ago plus the reaction after it, with his comments transcribed by MilanNews.
“Really: if I try to imagine it, I just can’t. Yet I was that kid who scored a double at Milan. I had no idea what I was doing. I seem almost incredulous. Even today, if I watch the video of the goals, I say ‘Man, I really did that…’. It doesn’t happen every day: ‘Come on, today I’m going to San Siro and score a double.’ It does not work like this,” he said.
“I received a flood of messages, especially from my friends who support Milan who in the WhatsApp group filled me with insults. It was their way of letting me know they were happy. They were almost happier than me.”
