Below are the Belgian’s statements regarding the history of Milan and the goals set with Maldini. On Serie A: “It is one of the best leagues in the world. There was a big title fight last year. Here people live for football, they love football, it’s a passion. Everyone knows the history of this club: 19 league titles, 7 Champions League. An incredible, immense story. And if we go back in time there are so many players that I could name, so being here and being part of this history makes me proud and charged “.
On past Milan strikers: “I love football. I’ve seen videos of Van Basten on YouTube, his years at Milan, his goals … Even though his career wasn’t long, the impact he had, as well as other strikers like Sheva, Inzaghi and Weah, is it was amazing. They made club history, and I’m not even mentioning half of it. They are icons and I love the idea of being in a club full of football culture and you can always learn from someone. I like to observe and learn. Now I’m here to bring my experience to the team and I hope I can help the team grow and keep winning ”.
On San Siro: “The first thing he transmits to me is the story he transmits and how legendary it was to play there, even though we played in an equally special stadium at Liverpool. But when you arrive at San Siro all the players are in awe, you can feel the football culture from small details like the fans, their knowledge of the club and their energy. I love that the fans care so much for the club, it impressed me, as well as the team’s attacking play, these are all things I love. “
