La Gazzetta dello Sport reports an anecdote that makes us understand how much Magic Mike wants to return as soon as possible to the side of his teammates
Only a few months in the Rossoneri but the AC Milan people are already madly in love with Mike Maignan. With his way of being the former Lille goalkeeper he conquered everyone in a very short time.
After a season start from hero in which Maignan was forced to a long period of stop due to a wrist problem that caused the arthroscopic operation. The Frenchman subsequently had to follow a rehabilitation process. Although, to tell the truth, this process now seemed to address Mike’s return to the field in the new year. And instead, surprising everyone, Magic seems ready to rejoin the group with a recovery from record!
Now a new anecdote emerges that was told this morning on the notes of The Gazzetta dello Sport. In fact, it seems that Maignan (who incredibly could already return in goal on Sunday against Sassuolo) he would have liked to re-enter the field with the Fiorentina! That’s right: with no leg training, Mike asked Stefano Pioli the possibility of making him play with the viola.
Obviously the Emilian coach has denied this possibility for the Frenchman, who would have risked a lot in the circumstance a possible relapse, even if in hindsight the Rossoneri fans certainly imagine how things would have gone with the French in goal. But this shows once again how much Mike cares about the Milan shirt, the AC Milan world, to do well with these colors. Maignan has taken Milan, and we can’t wait for that San Siro you go back to shouting your name.
