Today Rafael Leão, Léo Duarte and Ismaël Bennacer were officially presented as AC Milan players. Ahead of training at Milanello, the three summer signings spoke at a press conference as they discussed how they felt and their objectives for the upcoming season.
“Milan are a club that wants to bet on quality youngsters. We’re building a great team, all together we want to hit our objectives. I was welcomed very well and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of this great club. For me, it’s a dream to be here and the people at this club have shown they believe strongly in me and wanted me and this made the difference. I’m happy with the praise, I want to work humbly on the pitch and focus on what the Coach says.”
"I’m improving and Milan is the perfect team for me to learn more and work at my best. Milan have had great players and I need to do my best to get as close to them as I can. I feel very good, I’m happy. With the team and the facilities that we have such as Milanello, we can do our best.”
“I’m very happy to be here. My father always spoke to me about Milan and it brings me a real sense of pride to be here right now. When I got the call from Paolo Maldini, I was out shopping with my wife. My father has always been a huge fan of Paolo. Now I'm here, and I want to make history at this club.”
