Niang promises first AC Milan goal will come in the derby

AC Milan youngster M’Baye Niang has declared he will score his first goal for the Rossoneri in the derby against Inter.

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.”
