Torreira: Milan a ‘great club’ but…

Lucas Torreira admits Milan is “a beautiful city” and that the Rossoneri are “a great club” but assures “I’m very happy” at Sampdoria.

Torreira’s performances for Samp have seen him linked with both Milan and Inter, but while the midfielder did not hide his affection for the northern powerhouse, he vowed to maintain his focus on the Blucerchiati.

“Talked about a lot in my native Uruguay? Yes, it’s true, but I’m very happy to be here in Genoa at Sampdoria,” he said after receiving an award on Tuesday night.

“I feel great and want to give everything for this shirt. After that, there will be time to think about my future.

“Do I like the city of Milan? Yes, it’s a beautiful city. Would I like to know her better? I don’t know, for me the most beautiful city right now is Genoa.

“I feel very well here. I’m only thinking about the present, not the future. Does Milan’s resurgence worry us? Certainly they’re a great club, we know there’s still a long way to go before the season ends and that matches in this League are always tough and difficult.

“We’re only thinking about ourselves and we’ll keep doing what we’re doing. Now we’ll think about Atalanta, which is a very difficult game.

“After that, we’ll see what we’ve done and where we finish.”
