AC Milan’s new recruit Lucas Paquetá aims to help the club return to the Champions League as well as winning trophies to please the fans.

Paqueta 21 is likely to make his debut in today’s Coppa Italia clash with Sampdoria, but first starred in a special programme on Milan TV and cited on Football Italia.

He even gave a guided tour of the beach where he grew up playing with his brother, his childhood home and comments from his parents.

“I owe it all to my grandfather, who was my first Coach. I’m sure he is watching me from Heaven and is proud to see how I’ve grown.

“Milan is a beautiful city, with a very different culture. I hope my wife and I can settle in, so I can focus on my primary objective, which is helping Milan to win.

“Milan are a club known worldwide for their history, their success and the Brazilians who have come through here, such as my idol Kaka.

“I hope, along with my teammates, to bring Milan back to winning ways, achieve great trophies and bring the fans joy.”
