“I went through a bad period, I had to get out of it by myself rolling up my sleeves and working hard,” Calabria told Sky Sport.
“I think this other positive period is a reward for the sacrifices I have made, I hope to continue as I’m doing with Milan and I hope to arrive at the European Championship.”

back on the bench as he recovered from COVID-19.
“I talked to the coach a lot to establish a human relationship between us, it’s essential for a team to create a positive relationship, because it is then reflected on the pitch.
“Now, everyone gives everything for each other. In the period in which we unfortunately were without the coach, we gave everything to make him happy and we succeeded.
“And we are even more please that he’s back now.”
Calabria sees his future with Milan and he shows his dedication to the club.
“It’s certainly an objective to continue with this shirt,” he added. “I have always said that it’s an honor to be here.
“I grew up here. What I have done so far, is just a starting point.”
