After a difficult start with the Rossoneri, the France Under-21 international says he has now adjusted to life in Italy
The youngster made the move to the Rossoneri from French side Caen in July 2012, for a reported fee in the region of €3 million, and after a period of transition he is confident he now understands the Italian way of life.
"At first I was a little mental, but now I understand how it works in Italy and I've calmed down," he told RMC Sport.
"I have learned to pay attention to my lifestyle to avoid injury. At the beginning, I had something to prove, and I have started to do that [now].
Having been used sparingly during the first half of the campaign, the 18-year-old has featured heavily since the turn of the year and he admits he is happy to now have the chance to express himself.
He added: "It's going great, now I'm playing, I'm super happy. The hard work is beginning to pay off but there is a lot of competition so I know I must keep it up.
Milan currently sit fourth in Serie A, 12 points behind table-toppers Juventus.
