Niang promises first AC Milan goal will come in the derby
The 18-year-old has enjoyed an impressive first season with the club after joining from French side Caen in the summer.
“I am not a full-fledged starter as I must continue to play,” he told Corriere dello Sera.
“I must work everyday because Robinho is better than me and I must always look to get confirmation of my work.”
“In France the mentality is different to that of Italy: here you must be more professional. I am only asked to think about football and to be more careful in every aspect of life. ”
“AC Milan are my big chance and I can’t throw it away because of clubs, cars and other distractions.”
“My first goal? I will score it in the derby.”
