De Sciglio cools Italy talk

Milan stopper Mattia De Sciglio is playing down suggestions that he should soon become a stable member of the Italian international set-up.

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli is keeping an eye on the 20-year-old, but the Rossonero knows where his priorities are.

“I am just thinking about doing well for Milan and the Italian Under-21 side,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “Then, if I get a call-up from the full set-up, then I’ll obviously be very satisfied.”

The full-back has been impressive for the Diavolo this season and was one of the best players on the pitch in the 1-0 win over Juventus.

“I do not get excited very easily so I have no problems in keeping my feet on the ground after the win against Juve,” he added.

“I try to do the simple things first and then more complicated ones.

“I just owe boss Massimiliano Allegri a lot,” the youngster added. “He is giving me the chances to show my worth and prove that I am good enough to play in this team.”

De Sciglio has appeared in nine League games so far this season.
