Cutrone: Milan prefer foreigners

Patrick Cutrone claims he was ousted because Milan ‘prefer foreigners’ and sees ‘similarities’ between Wolverhampton Wanderers and European rivals Torino.

Cutrone recently joined Wolves in a €22m deal and is currently preparing for a Europa League playoff tie with Toro, whom he knows well from his time at Milan.

“My first impressions have been excellent,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I was received very well and I’ve already settled in. I didn’t like living in a hotel, so I’ve found a house where my best friend has been keeping me company.

“It’ll be tough against Torino. They’re a good team and there are several similarities between us and them: passionate fans, character, pride, a sense of belonging.”

Despite being a Rossoneri youth product and potential Italy No 9, the club cashed in on the 21-year-old and replaced him with Portuguese forward Rafael Leao.

“It’s always the same, old story: foreigners are preferred to us. For us twenty-somethings, it’s hard, but in any case I’d like to emphasise something: I’ll always be grateful to Milan for what they gave me.”
