“The last step of my career”. This is how Marco Sportiello defines him, who enters on tiptoe into what for him “is a dream. And it’s not a cliché”, confessed the goalkeeper in the presentation press conference at Milanello. “I gave everything to Atalanta, I’m happy with the progress I made. Coming to Milan was the right choice” “No one has ever given me anything, for me it was a dream to get to Serie A and being there for the tenth year is a reason to pride – continues the goalkeeper -. Maignan? When he arrived in Italy, I immediately said that he was very strong and he confirmed it and it wasn’t easy after Donnarumma. I’m 31 but I think I can steal something from him in the trade. If and when I get involved, “he explains again Sportiello with humility.
One of his idols was Sebastiano Rossi, but for Sportiello the references are and have been others too, “from Courtois to Ter Stegen to Oblak. Even if from Inter – he finally says, looking around with a touch of fear -, I think Handanovic in his best years was very strong, definitely one of my role models”.
