Lille Star Comments on Milan Coach and Possibly Joining

Milan are expected to hire Daniel Fonseca next week, and he might bring some players he’s very familiar with, for instance Yusuf Yazici. The midfielder talked up the coach and dished on his future to SoFoot (via Calcioblog).

“As natural, fans expected me to leave after a botched loan spell at Trabzonspor. I went to the manager and told him I wanted to prove my worth and that I could still help the team. He trusted me and asked me to get to work. I like him and learned a lot from him. I love his sincerity and how close he’s with players.”

Yazici could become a cheap option for Milan since his contract is about to expire.

“I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I’m fine at Lille. It’s pleasing to see that many important clubs are interested in me, but I wish to focus on the Euro first. I’ve still many dreams to chase in football. Surely, you can’t be indifferent to a club like this. I recall Ronaldinho, David Bekham… We’ll see.”

Yazici further lauded the likely new Milan boss.

“Fonseca taught me a more mature brand of football. I’m sharper in the attack and have fun defending. I would have never guessed I would say it in the past. I like to participate in the build-up and play behind a striker. He showed me that that wasn’t enough. I wasn’t tracking back and recovering balls enough. I’m older now and understand the importance of contributing to the passive phase, especially in today’s football.”
