AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang insists wild days are over

AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang insists his wild ways are over.

Niang was the 'bad boy' of French and then Italian football, fully confessing to a series of misadventures.

“Barely a month would go by without me doing something stupid. The worst was the incident in the car in February. At that point I said to myself, enough."

He said of Milan coach Vincenzo Montella, "I have a good rapport with Montella, as we just immediately got along. He made me feel that he wants me here, from the very first day. He put me at the centre of his project, talks to me if I make a mistake or if I need it. He cares and there's genuine affection.

“We said what we expect from one another and continue to do that."
