“We are very happy for him”, AC Milan boss praises Samuel Chukwueze


AC Milan manager, Stefano Pioli has praised Samuel Chukwueze for his change in mentality.

The Nigerian has now settled down at the club following a difficult start and initially struggled to replicate the impressive form which persuaded AC Milan to sign him from LaLiga club, Villarreal last summer.

Chukwueze has however stepped up his game in recent weeks and impressed in Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Leece.

The winger, who was in action for 90 minutes registered an assist and also created five chances.

Pioli highlighted the shift in Chukwueze’s mindset, emphasising the newfound confidence and understanding of his role within the team.

The coach commended Chukwueze’s dedication and resilience, acknowledging the challenges players face amidst external pressures.

“His (Chukwueze) mind has changed. Now he has confidence, he is positive, he believes in what he does,” Pioli was quoted by Pianetamilan.

“Having grown up in condition, he knows better what the team has to do. He knows what he has to do with and without the ball.

“I am very happy for him, he went through a difficult time. From the outside everything seems beautiful, roses and flowers, for kids who also earn a lot of money.

“He believed in it, he worked a lot and overcame a difficult moment, we are very happy for him: it pleases me, the club, the team.”

The 24-year-old has one goal and two assists to his name in 19 league appearances for AC Milan this season.
