Samuel Chukwueze: Kaka and Bacca key to my AC Milan decision

Samuel Chukwueze is delighted to be an AC Milan player.

The former Villarreal winger signed for the Rossonero on Thursday.

He revealed: "When I was a kid, I only looked at Ricardo Kaká. The goal he scored in the Champions League against Manchester United… When his head hit the ball and the defenders collided it was incredible.

"I think Kaká was my player from the great Milan, he was fantastic. When I watched some of his YouTube videos, I saw all the crazy things he did in the Rossoneri shirt. He was a fabulous player."

Chukwueze continued: "I played together with Carlos Bacca (at Villarreal), I also came here because he was at Milan and played for Villarreal. I heard from him and asked him about the club and he told me it was fantastic.

"I really had so many questions because I really like Milan and I think they're a great team with a great history. So I asked him and he said it's a fantastic club and I should come here."
