Sunday was a big day for Patrick Cutrone, as he started his second Premier League game of the season against Manchester City, which Wolverhampton went onto win 2-0.
The Italian didn’t find the back of the net, nor was he on the pitch when the two goals were scored, but Nuno Espírito Santo’s decision to start the Italian showed the Portuguese is trusting him more and more, which bodes well for the future.
Called up to Italy’s U21 squad for the current international break, the 21-year-old was part of the Tuesday press conference, where he touched upon his situation at Molineux and how his first few months have gone.
He said, relayed by Corriere dello Sport: “The Premier League? I had an adaptation period with the new team. I’m comfortable here. To be welcomed like this by the fans was great. I’m comfortable with my teammates and my staff. It’s great to play in the Premier League.”
On the praise he received from Guardiola: “I’m happy about his words, but I need to stay grounded and do well”.
Another area that was brought up were Milan’s struggles in Serie A, as his former side have found like difficult in these early months under Marco Giampaolo, whose job is currently at risk.
He said: “I’m a fan, and I watch every game. I hate to see them struggling, but the team is strong and I think they’ll turn it around.”
As for his relationship with Milan fans: “It made me happy to receive all those messages when the transfer happened. It’s nice to know you’ve left a good image. It makes me proud”.
