AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca has dismissed speculation suggesting that he will leave the club in the summer after just one season in Italy.
The Colombian international arrived at the San Siro last summer, and has gone on to score 13 goals already this season in the Rossoneri’s bid to get back into the Champions League.
Rumours have suggested that the former Sevilla star could be set to leave at the end of the season, with his agent even claiming that his client faced an uncertain future, but Bacca has moved to dismiss all the talk.
“I am happy here at Milan, you can see that every day,” smiled Bacca on Milan Channel and Mediaset Premium, as noted by Football Italia.
“I am relishing the affection of the fans, my family is happy here and I work every day with faith in God, whether things go well or badly.
“It fills me with pride that the fans show such affection after such a short amount of time here. They make me want to continue working, being highly motivated and doing things the right way. I will continue giving the best of myself.”
“Who is the best striker in Serie A? Carlos Bacca!”
Milan sit just two points behind fourth-placed Inter, although they will undoubtedly be setting their sights on the third and final Champions League qualification spot as they look to close down the six-point gap that exists between them and Fiorentina
However, they face a difficult trip to Napoli on Monday night, with the Scudetto contenders looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Villarreal in the Europa League on Thursday.
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side will head into the game with plenty of confidence though, as they are unbeaten since January 6 which in turn has seen them begin to apply real pressure to their rivals for a place in Europe next season.
