Kalulu has had more of an impact than many envisaged when he joined Milan for €500,000 in the Summer. The 20-year-old joined from Lyon and has performed well when called upon despite his lack of experience.
Discussing his decision to move to Milan with Eurosport, the Frenchman said: “There was apprehension, but behind it there was also a real interest and a real project. That’s why I chose Milan.”
He also said that Pioli’s trust in him has been beneficial.
“It is a pleasure to have this possibility and to be able to win,” he said. “The coach trusts me. I can show what I’m capable of.”
Kalulu also talked about Milan’s season so far, and how every game feels like a final with so much on the line.
“For us every match is like a final,” Kalulu said. “In Serie A we’re aiming for something important and that means winning.
“It doesn’t matter who the opponent is. A match always earns three points. And against Manchester United, in the Europa League, it will obviously be a tough match. ”
