Krzysztof Piatek admits he is in awe of the sheer stature of Milan after signing for the club.

Piatek has hit the ground running for Milan since his €35m switch from Genoa last month, scoring three goals in his first three appearances for the Rossoneri.

“I’ve scored goals in Serie A, this is the pressure I’ve chosen,” the Poland striker told Football Italia.

“I must adapt, but I certainly won’t change. I plan to always be the same person and work like before.

The former Genoa forward shared talked about his meeting with the club legends after signing for the club.

“Milan? Seedorf asked me for a photo! It’s fantastic that people like him know me and want to talk to me, like Shevchenko in the dressing room before the game against Napoli.

“After I signed my contract, I received a message from Alvaro Morata: he told me he watches me and wished me good luck. That’s also fantastic.

Piatek talked about his celebration and areas he is striving to improve in his game.

“My celebration not in Poland? I wasn’t prepared, but it’s true that after I scored my second goal, I made the gesture and it stayed with me.

“It’s been fantastic to score as many goals as I have and the fans in Italy have gone crazy. Do I work on free kicks? I stop after training because a striker must score goals from any position.

“I’ve improved physically and also in terms of holding off challenges and speed. Lately, I’ve become more accurate with my shooting.

“Now I’m getting more shots on target. After training, I work on the positioning of my feet. If you see my first goals in Serie A, they’re very similar.
