AC Milan defender Kalulu on slow start: I was played out of position

AC Milan defender Pierre Kalulu concedes he had a slow start to his Rossonero career.

Kalulu was influential in Milan’s title winning campaign this season, though struggled in his first 12 months after joining from Lyon in 2020.

“I made my debut late, in an away Europa League match against Sparta Prague. I hadn’t played for four months and it took a while to settle in physically and tactically,” he told

“Here it’s very different from France. I had to understand and in that moment the coach thought there we players better than me. I decided to greet my teeth and I played that game as a left midfielder.

“During the training, the coach asked me: ‘Have you ever played as a right winger?’ I replied: ‘Sure, no problem,’ but I would have said the same even if he had asked me if I had ever played as centre midfielder.

“At Lyon, we trained to be the best in every position, also in midfield, but when you don’t play, you can’t be happy,” he continued.

“I worked hard and the first game was good. The coach noticed my strength and how much I ran even if I had things to improve.”
