Krzysztof Piatek secured a move from the Rossoneri in January after finding game-time hard to come by at the club.

Piatek appears to have taken a swipe at Milan’s management and was critical of how they treat strikers at the club.

The Polish striker saw a poor run of form quite opposite to his debut season in Italy with one half in Genoa and the other at Milan.

With Milan looking for goals fast, they turned to former man and club legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Piatek has plans to make Poland’s EURO 2020 squad and wasn’t impressed with the idea of being a second fiddle.

The 26-year-old completed a move to Hertha Berlin in the latter stages of the winter window.

However, it looks like the former Genoa man is not happy at all with how the Rossoneri management treated him.

“Scoring is a passion, expectations are very high in Berlin and the fans in the city shouted ‘Piatek, pum, pum, pum!’ at me. Being on the bench at Milan after Ibrahimovic’s arrival?

“This happens at Milan. They change stringers every year, so it’s probably a habit for them,” Piatek told Bild (via calciomercato.com).
