On the final day of the transfer window, AC Milan announced the signing of Junior Messias from Serie B side Crotone. Needless to say, it didn’t get the fans jumping with excitement, expecting a bigger name for the attacking trio.
Messias scored nine goals for Crotone last season and assisted an additional four goals. showing that he can do well even in the first tier. However, despite his age of 30, he doesn’t have much experience and it’s indeed a gamble by Milan.
In an interview with Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, the well-known Italian agent Andrea D’Amico shared his thoughts on Messias to Milan. He made it clear that he thinks Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara made a good decision.
“I also mention Milan, who replaced Donnarumma well and took on an excellent player like Giroud. I’m personally convinced that the purchase of Messias is also an excellent operation,” he stated.
Hopefully, Messias can prove the doubters wrong on the pitch. The pressure will certainly be on the Brazilian international to do well, given the importance of both the No.10 and right-wing role.
