Stefano Caldara, father of former AC Milan defender Mattia Caldara, accuses the Rossoneri of breaking promises and lacking faith in his son.
The January transfer window opened on a high note for the Rossoneri. After two months of negotiations Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned at AC Milan and his arrival brought a much needed dose of enthusiasm. However, what followed wasn’t pleasing.
Unexpectedly, AC Milan decided to let Mattia Caldara return to Atalanta. The Rossoneri remained patient and cured the player for a year and a half only to sell him at one of their biggest league rivals.
Caldara joined Atalanta on loan for 18 months with the right to make the move permanent for a transfer fee of ‘just’ €15 million. A figure that represents a huge financial loss for AC Milan club. If that wasn’t enough, the words of Stefano Caldara, Mattia’s father, are guaranteed to cause further controversy.
“Today he feels very good, as he did lately at Milan. He played for Primavera squad three times but never had a chance to return to the first team. He has always trained well, why not try him in the first team then? Patience, it has long goen. Despite the many promises, at Milan there has never really been the possibility to enter the first squad“, said Caldaria senior accusing Milan of lacking faith in the defender in an interview with Tuttosport.
Mattia Caldara joined AC Milan in 2018 from Juventus in exchange for Leonardo Bonucci. The Rossoneri signed Bonucci one year ago for a record fee of 42 million euros. Caldara made only two appearances with the Rossoneri but started from the first minute in his first match with Atalanta. Should Milan been more patient with the Italian defender? Only time will tell.
