AC Milan forward, Rafael Leao has come out to insist that the club winning the Champions League is worth more to him than a potential €10m (£9m/€10.5m) salary in Saudi Arabia. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the club managed to reach the UCL semis last season, so they are definitely on the right track to winning the competition if the players keep at it.
Leao added that he is a footballer who wants to win the biggest trophies, so he is looking forward to that.
His words, “I think the club is on the right track, we managed to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League. Now the club’s goal must be to keep going up, to keep adding, to keep being strong. And I’m sure Milan will soon return to winning a Champions League, which is our goal. I speak for myself, I’m young, I’m a player who wants to win big things, the Champions League I think is the dream of every player and we are working for that.”
“You can never say never, but I’m at a club that has welcomed me very well, I’ve renewed now, if I had plans to leave I wouldn’t renew. I’m focused on doing great things in two or three years at AC Milan. I have not yet achieved great things to leave for a league like that [Saudi Pro League]. These days money has spoken louder, but for me a Champions League is worth more than a €10 million salary, for example.”
