It is the most genuine dream of every child who starts kicking a ball, a simple but never banal event. Which starts with a poster, a donated shirt, a sticker, and a PlayStation. In front of every child who approaches football, there is the desire to share places and moments with their childhood idol.
Dusan Vlahovic and Gianluca Scamacca, born respectively in 2000 and 1999, are well aware of this. Just as Zlatan, with the Malmo shirt, was starting his career. So it happens that, while the Swede undressed the Juve shirt to embrace Inter, the two started primary school. It happens that while the two celebrated the age of majority and the driving license, Ibra won the Europa League with Manchester United. Different life stages with similar peculiarities, found on the Serie A fields this season. It is not surprising, then, that autographed shirt after Fiorentina-Milan: “I was impressed by the dedication: ‘Good luck with everything, I wish you the best. He wrote it in Serbian, my language. It was unique.” Dusan explained. Which, in the Rossoneri’s list, he is the first choice for the attack.
In the meantime, Milan is also looking at Scamacca. Physicality, technique, malice, and a lot of determination: “Someone even dubbed me as bad because I transform myself on the pitch: to get to the result I am willing to do anything, from an extra race to hitting, in quotation marks, the opponent” the striker explained to Sport Week. Phrases that, we are sure, someone like Ibrahimovic would like. “A young player must play as much as possible, stealing the secrets. Then it is clear that if you play the vice of a champion who, however, cannot play all of them at 39, the situation changes”. Yes, because an exception is made for Ibra. If on the one hand there is the risk of playing only a dozen games as a starter, on the other there is the possibility of growing – technically and not only – for at least a year alongside such an experienced and charismatic striker. A real ace in the hole that Milan is ready to play in the transfer market, where they can’t go wrong – after so many lean years – the choice of the new striker.
