Krzysztof Piatek is already making his mark on the Milan record book.

Piatek is the fastest player in Milan’s history to reach six goals, using minutes played. 310 minutes of game time, six goals. That’s one goal every 51.67 minutes or 1.74 goals per 90 minutes.

It’s an incredible pace, and while he can’t possibly keep it up, it’s still about as dramatic a start for a Milan striker as we’ve seen in recent years.
