Caldara on Milan move: 'It was an easy choice to make'
- The 24-year-old claims he's happy to be at Milan, excited to play at San Siro & thankful to both Atalanta and Juventus for believing in him
Caldara told the press conference, as quoted by Forza Italian Football: "When I arrived here, of course, I thought about the history of Milan because this is a club where the strongest defenders have played in recent times.
"From that point of view, it was an easy choice to make. I want to thank the club for believing in me and I can’t wait to prove my worth. I feel like I’ve grown a lot in recent years under [Gian Piero] Gasperini.
"The Europa League adventure has also prepared me well because I was playing every three days so I must also thank Atalanta.
"Juventus were the first big club who believed in me but when I had this opportunity it was hard to say no and I’m happy that the negotiations have been successful because this isn’t a move that I’m daunted about.
"I look forward to playing at the San Siro too. It is the stadium which excites you the most in Italy and every child dreams of playing here. Since Thursday, I’ve felt the warmth of the fans and can’t wait to show what I can do."
