The former Rossoneri player admits that he used to put himself under “too much” pressure back in his days with Milan before heading to Lyon.
, talked about placing
pressure on himself back in his days withAC Milan
and how Leonardo’s departure made him feel alone at the Rossoneri.
Paquetà, who joined the Serie A side for €38m in January 2019, moved to Lyon for €20m last September.
"At Milan, I had put a lot of pressure on myself. Too much. When I arrived here in Lyon, I told myself that I shouldn't have as much,”
"I wanted to give the best of me. As of today, I've managed it.”
"I was aware of my responsibilities at Milan. I knew why I was there. Things don't always go as they should. You imagine something. You put pressure on yourself.”
"It's inexplicable. Sometimes there's not even a reason for failure. Although my Milan experience was not extraordinary, it was useful because I'm a better player now.”
"I'm a different Paquetà, a stronger player. There will always be pressure, but it won't come from myself.”
"I arrived in a new country, a new continent. Leonardo was helping me. Things were going well for me when he was at the club.”
"We can say he was something like a mentor to me. But then he moved to Paris, I felt a little bit alone.”
“I hadn't settled in totally. Now, you see a different Paquetà, identified with the club. I owe it to Milan and Leonardo, who I want to help. He helped me to face difficulties.”
