Patrick Cutrone insists he is not feeling the pressure at Milan after offering his backing to Coach Vincenzo Montella and ‘leader’ Leonardo Bonucci.
Cutrone has been a rare bright spark in Milan’s season, with Montella and Bonucci coming under particular scrutiny for their poor performances at the helm and in defence respectively.
“Certainly, there’s a lot of anger as we didn’t deserve to lose for how we played in the second half. Now we have to respond in our next game,” the teenage striker said at a Press conference for Thursday’s Europa League match against AEK Athens.
“Strikers? The Coach decides, but I’m fine with everything.
“I didn’t think I’d have played so much over the summer. I just thought about training well and making it difficult for the Coach, whom I thank for his faith.
“Pressure? I don’t really feel it, I’m just thinking about doing well. I still haven’t done anything with Milan, I still have a lot of work to do.
“Bonucci? He’s a leader for us, especially us young players.”
