Plizzari warns Milan: 'I want to play'

Milan third choice goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari warns his impressive U20 World Cup performances could change his career path. “I want to play.”

The 19-year-old came up through the Rossoneri youth academy, just like Gianluigi Donnarumma, and made a big impact as Italy reached the semi-finals of the U20 World Cup.

He made only six appearances for his club this season, all of them for the Primavera youth team.

“I want to play,” Plizzari told reporters. “I improved when on loan at Ternana last year because I was constantly on the pitch.

“I hope to have a few chances to play at Milan too. It’ll be tough, but I like a challenge and I know how much I can give.

“After the World Cup, I will have a good think about my options.”

There have been reports Donnarumma could be sold to help balance the books, giving Plizzari the gloves with Pepe Reina in support.
