'Milan aren't helping Piatek'

The man who helped take Krzysztof Piatek to Italy claims “Milan’s situation right now isn’t helping” the misfiring striker.

Piatek looked like money well spent for Milan as he repaid their €35m investment with 11 goals in 21 games during the second half of last season.

He was equally impressive for Genoa, netting 19 times in just 21 matches for the Grifone, who paid only €4m for his services in the summer of 2018.

However, the Pole has mustered a mere three goals this season and Giorgio Perinetti believes the Diavolo are to blame for his drought.

“Piatek’s a strong-willed, determined man who’s had a great impact on Italian football and Genoa,” the Rossoblu’s ex-general manager told Sky Sport Italia.

“He’s also had a great impact on Milan, but the ups and downs at the club haven’t helped him.

“He’s a player who must improve in the concept of team play, although he’s good at finishing.

“Even then Milan’s situation right now isn’t helping him, but a striker can resolve problems quickly.

“He just needs to get back scoring.”
