Patrick Cutrone spoke after Milan’s 3-1 win over Olympiacos in the Europa League. Cutrone was a critical part of the second-half comeback, scoring twice after coming on in the 55th minute.
Patrick Cutrone "can only learn from Gonzalo Higuain" after they both scored for #ACMilan to beat #Olympiacos 3-1 https://t.co/ZQp2pWB4F6 #MilanOlympiacos #UEL pic.twitter.com/9pRnBZ7EHM— footballitalia (@footballitalia) October 4, 2018
Cutrone told Sky Sports Italia, “I’m always hungry for goals. We were at home, we were trailing, we needed the three points and I think we deserved them.”
Cutrone obviously was one of the bright spots of the match, and perhaps his play tonight will mean that he’ll get more involved as the season goes on.
