Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta insists no AC Milan grudge

Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta insists he holds no grudge against former club AC Milan.

He was sold to Lyon in September for €20m plus a 15 per cent cut of any future sale.

“I feel no rancour towards Milan, nor a desire for revenge," Paqueta told L'Equipe.

“In fact, I thank them for this period of my life, even though it was painful. That's part of life.

“Now I want to rediscover my football, which is about joy, the kind we play in Brazil. I feel that here in Lyon there is the right energy to do that."
