The Polish striker is currently the Italian Lega Serie A sensation as he proved to be a magnificent scorer.

Krzysztof Piatek started playing professionally with Lechia Dzierzoniow in 2012.

The next year he moved to Zaglebie Lubin for three years.

But his best performance was with Cracovia from 2016 to 2018, where he scored 32 goals in 63 matches.

Now, after moving to Italian Lega Serie A club Genoa, he played perfectly for six months and he was quickly bought by rivals AC Milan.

And is with the Rossoneri where he hopes to shine.

“If I had all the qualities that the newspapers are talking about, I’d be the best player in history,” Piatek said to Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy.

“I hope that Milan will return to greatness thanks to me and that one day I will be really worthy of those comparisons.”

“In my opinion, certain newspapers are exaggerated. I take only a part of those praises. I’m satisfied with the goals, not the fact that thanks to them I am on the front covers,” he commented.

“I especially like those with whom I sit at the table during meals, that is [Hakan] Calhanoglu, [Tiemoue] Bakayoko, [Lucas] Paqueta, [Franck] Kessie, [Ricardo] Rodriguez and [Fabio] Borini, we have created a real team, Paqueta knows how I want the ball, and he has great technical skills.”

“I left Poland when I was ready for all these challenges from every point of view: physical, mental, technical,” he added.

“I could have done it before, but I preferred to stay for a year longer and I absolutely do not regret it.”
