Caldara Itching For New Season

Caldara Itching For New Season

Mattia Caldara says he can’t wait for the 2019/20 campaign to start after enduring a frustrating year at AC Milan. Italy international Caldara joined the Rossoneri from Italian champions Juventus last summer as part of a deal which saw Leonardo Bonucci return to Turin after just one season with Milan.

However, the 25-year-old Caldara has yet to make his Serie A debut for his new employers and was restricted to just two appearances over the course of last season due to injuries. The centre-back ruptured his knee ligaments towards the end of the campaign having missed a large chunk of it due to an Achilles problem, but is now back in training and is raring to go.

“I’m getting stronger and fitter; I’m back out training, jogging, sprinting and doing strengthening exercises,” Caldara told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Paolo Maldini has always had time for me, and we talk a lot. When we do, I feel that he trusts me. Having a legend like him around is a great boost for the club.

“I’ve missed playing for Milan and Italy a lot, Roberto Mancini only calls up players that deserve it and I want to prove that I deserve a place in his squad.”
