Shevchenko: “Piatek has earned the number nine shirt”

By Isak Möller -

In a long interview with La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Shevchenko spoke about AC Milan’s striker Krzysztof Piatek, who recently switched to the number nine shirt. 

“Piatek? He has earned the number nine shirt. The way he arrived at Milan, the naturalness, the important goals he scored. He had a great impact and now it is only right that Kris gets responsibility for such an important shirt,” he began. 

The former Milan man also spoke about the Rossoneri’s new manager, Giampaolo, praising the decision to bring the Italian onboard. 

“I think he is a guy with strong ideas. Giampaolo is a coach who can get great results through the game. He gives an impression, he is prepared. I think it was a good choice,” he concluded.
