Davide Calabria believes Milan lacked personality against Udinese and hopes to strike back already against Sampdoria.
It’s possible to already see Calabria from the first minute at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium and the fullback spoke to the MilanTV today, expressing desire to demonstrate what he has in his feet.
“It’s my second year in Serie A, I’m very motivated and happy to still be here and I hope to play in many matches and showcase my potential,” he said.
“We’re beginning a journey with a new coach so we are trying to put into practice his ideas as much as possible. It’ll take a bit of time, but we’re on the right track.
“Unfortunately, the game with Udinese was not good, also because of their style as they were very tight and because of the unlucky goal, but I’m convinced that we can make amends as early as Friday.
“We had to be quicker in our movement against Udinese. Playing against teams that are very tight is never easy. They were crowded in their own half and played on the counterattack and it’s never easy.
“The team talk after the loss? It was a talk like so many others. We missed a bit of character and personality against Udinese, we got carried away by the rhythm of the game, but we shouldn’t feel sorry for ourselves, we’re only at the beginning of the season. What we hope to do is impose our game. We have good potential and we are trying to improve day by day. I think we can make it.
“The style of the coach? His game style can bring the best out of my characteristics, the Coach wants a proactive game and high full-backs. I will try to do my best. Sampdoria? They are in a good form and have important players. I expect a great match because we come off the home defeat to Udinese.
“We must give 100% in order to take home the points. The Coppa Italia final? It is a defeat that still hurts, I thought we’d succeed in taking it home because I saw Juventus in difficulty. Unfortunately, we lost due to an incident. We had to be more clinical, but I hope to win it in the future.
“The youth project at Milan? Yes, something has changed. I’ve been at Milan for many years. Before, it was harder to get into the first team. The project Milan is implementing is a positive one, the results are starting to be seen and it’s nice that the club are focusing on their youth system.
“Many youngsters were on the United States Tour and they played. It’s the right way and it’s definitely a source of pride for us and for the club,” added the 19-year-old fullback who grew up at Milan.
