Piatek: 'I knew the ball was coming'

Krzysztof Piatek admits “six goals in five Milan games is more than I expected,” but remains typically cool when describing his stunning volley against Atalanta.

The Poland international has managed to reach six competitive goals in just five appearances for the club, four of them in the starting XI.

“I always believe in myself and trust that I will score many goals, but I admit six in five games is more than I expected,” he told DAZN and Milan TV.

The equaliser for the eventual 3-1 victory over Atalanta was an astonishing volley, as he practically had his back to goal and hooked it around Berat Djimsiti into the far corner.

“I was being marked closely, but I knew the ball would come into the box sooner or later, so I made the movement to ensure I got there first."

As for the second goal, it was the first header from a corner that Milan had scored in Serie A since March 2018.

“I am happy with the two goals today and want to keep going like this. I am a striker, so I’d like to score in every game.”
