Diogo Dalot has reportedly slept in AC Milan training camp Milanello to bring his career back on track as per the report in Goal.
After failing to find regular first-team action at Old Trafford. The 22-year-old decided to join the Rossoneri on loan last October. Although he wasn’t a starter for Stefano Pioli’s side, he made 33 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A giants, scoring two goals in this process.
According to the report, Dalot slept at Milan’s training camp to recover as quickly as possible and reduce the possibility of getting injured.
The report further claims that the Portuguese even avoided travelling when they were given off to minimize the risk of contracting Covid-19 so that he would not have to sit out unnecessarily.
The result of these precautions was apparent as the right-back was the only Rossoneri player who was available for selection throughout the last season. The player did some extra training and took extra care on recoveries to prevent the injuries. The defender’s work paid off and now getting minutes at Manchester United as well.
Dalot took extra precautionary measures at Milan:
After having a productive loan stint at the Rossoneri. The 22-year-old was rewarded with a call up to the Portugal national squad for the Euro 2020.
Having improved at the San Siro stadium. Stefano Pioli’s side wanted to bring him back to Italy this summer on loan. But, the Red Devils weren’t eager to lose the youngster on loan.
The Portuguese made his first start of the season against Villarreal last night but endured a torrid time against Danjuma. The Dutchman went past the 22-year-old on a few occasions like he wasn’t even there.
So, in order to make a real case for himself to start regularly. The defender will have to showcase much more solid performances than Wednesday night’s.
