Alexis Saelemaekers proud to sign permanently with AC Milan

Alexis Saelemaekers is proud to have signed permanently with AC Milan.

The midfielder has signed permanently from Anderlecht in the past week after joining in January on-loan.

He said, “Since I arrived, I have worked hard. I have tried to work with the right mentality and settle in the squad. I tried to get an opportunity to play.

“The coach gave me the chance and I do my best to deserve it. I'm doing well and I hope to continue like this."

The youngster also highlighted the support he had from Hakan Calhanoglu when first arriving.

“When you arrive at Milanello, you realise the importance of this club and the legends who have played here. It's great for me to be here.

“Hakan has been fantastic. When I arrived here, he welcomed me with lots of advice, both on the pitch and for the city.

“I admire Hakan, Rafa [Leao], [Ismael] Bennacer and Franck [Kessie]. It's nice to have people like them here, they help you settle in the best way."
