AC Milan signing Acerbi almost dropped into Serie B

Francesco Acerbi has completed his move to AC Milan from Chievo Verona.

Acerbi was ready to join a Serie B club in January, his agent has explained.

“Up until December, he never saw the field of play at Chievo,” Andrea Cattoli commented. “When January arrived we asked for a transfer.

“The player called me on a daily basis because he didn’t want to just sit on the bench. He was also ready to step down to Serie B if necessary.

“We subsequently spoke to Chievo and they assured us that he would get his chance. He was given an opportunity against Udinese, did well and played ever since.”
