Long interview given to “Outpump” magazine by Rafael Leao, who, among other things, talks about his beginnings with the Rossoneri shirt:
“The first two years at Milan were difficult, I came from France, where everything was smaller and life was very different. In Milan I know you have to be a winner, that many legends have worn the same shirt as you, winning so many trophies. You feel it and live it immediately. After a transition process I have become a different person and a different player.
In this period, my family, Mr. Pioli and Ibra, who I keep close to me every day, were essential. Zlatan is an example, he taught me the importance of looking, of always staying focused, even off the field.
Now I want to take advantage of all the opportunities that are on the horizon, I want to be a protagonist and deserve my place in the starting eleven of the national team. And if there is a chance to win, it will be very nice.”
