New AC Milan signing Edmund Hottor landed in Italy’s fashion capital yesterday to begin his Rossoneri adventure.
The 16-year-old Ghanaian midfielder joined the Serie A giants from Triestina this month and is expected to link up with the club’s youth team for the time being.
“I am very happy to be here,” he admitted to Sportitalia.
“When my agent told me about it, I couldn’t quite believe him. Shortly after I called my mother who is in Ghana and when I travelled back to Africa I threw a party with my brothers and friends.
“My mother was very proud that I had moved to Milan.”
Hottor arrived in Italy in 2008 and made his professional debut during a Serie B match between Triestina and Gallipoli in October 2009.
“He reminds me of Massimo Ambrosini,” explained Triestina youth team director Franco Schiraldi.
“He is a holding midfielder who has good feet. He prefers sitting in front of the backline and likes directing play.”
