AC Milan striker Mattia Destro has revealed that his main mission for the season is to prove his quality on the pitch while helping the Diavolo fight for their return to Europe.

The Rossoneri currently sit six points outside of the top five in the Serie A standings in 10th place and the 23-year-old admits that the San Siro outfit need to earn a few consecutive wins in order to get them back on track for a successful finish to the season.

Destro spoke to about the current situation at AC Milan and touched on how well he’s been adapting at his new club since arriving from Roma in January, while also commenting on the team’s primary objective for the campaign.

“I want to prove myself, doing well here is very important to me,” said the Italian international, who has scored one goal in his three appearances for Milan thus far.

“We’ve been doing well with these new tactics, however I’ve only just arrived and I’m still yet to fully adapt to the ways of this team.

“The team has been working well every week and we remain committed. Our plan is to go out and win every Sunday.

“I’ve always tried to keep a high level of confidence, I know what I can give in order to help avoid a negative result each Sunday.

“I hope I can start scoring a lot, starting with out next match against Chievo. All of our matches are difficult and we have an obligation to win, so we must only think of ourselves and concentrate on winning.

“Do I regret anything from my time at Roma? I don’t know, I’m a Milan player now and I only want to think about the good of this team.

“[Sporting director] Walter Sabatini had said there were some problems, but I only want to think of helping Milan do their best and achieve these important goals we have set for ourselves.

“The thing we need most is continuity. This is the main thing we have been missing and I hope it comes soon.

“Being able to win two or three games in a row would be important in many ways for this team, especially for our ranking.

“Is [coach Pippo] Inzaghi worried? No, I’ve never seen him worried during the workouts or anything. We all give our maximum effort during the week and during every game.”

The striker also spoke to Sky Sport Italia about his desire to put in good performances every week and the Milan side’s goal of returning to Europe.

“I’m here because my goal is to show all of my qualities and show that I can give so much to the team,” he said.

“The team’s goal, as well as my own, is to reach Europe.”
