Italian super agent Mino Raiola is backing Rodrigo Ely for success at AC Milan.

The former Gremio defender is making his way in Italian football with the Rossoneri.

Raiola said: "He's a great person, he said in Brazil 'now I just want to play for Milan'.

"He was right, now begins his journey. He's a central defender that can grow in a group as healthy as the Rossoneri alongside great champions. Now he waits for the right moment to enter into the first team."
