Calabria 'very proud' of new contract

Davide Calabria is “very proud” to have signed a new contract with Milan to 2022, thanking Gennaro Gattuso and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The defender came up through their youth academy and his current deal was due to expire at the end of next season.

“I am very proud of this contract renewal and announcing it at the youth sector’s Christmas party was just incredible,” said Calabria.

“My history with this club is something marvellous. I remember all the Christmas parties I had here at Milan, but today will definitely stick with me. I hope to see these lads in the first team with me in a few years’ time.”

The Rossoneri have seemingly found their confidence again under Coach Gattuso following back-to-back wins over Bologna and Hellas Verona.

“We can only thank Gattuso. It’ll take a bit more time to absorb all his tactical ideas, but we all listen to him and he has unique experience with this club.”

Last night’s 3-0 Coppa Italia victory over Verona was a tense affair at San Siro, as ultras insulted Donnarumma and urged him to leave after rumours he was trying to tear up the contract signed only a few months ago.

“Gigio is fantastic both on and off the field. He’s a great professional and always calm. We are all with him,” concluded Calabria.
