Andre Silva scored his first Serie A goal for AC Milan yesterday, slotting home the only goal in the victory against Genoa.

The Portugal striker had this to say to AC Milan TV after the match:

If I don’t get to play much it’s because I have to work harder. I had not scored in the competition yet. I am very happy, although Suso’s cross wasn’t so good (laughs). I would like to thank everyone, the staff and my teammates. Scoring means everything to me. We will give our all against Arsenal, we believe in ourselves

Hopefully this goal will build up the confidence of the striker, and he can turn in a few more goals in Serie A this season.
