Alessandro PLIZZARI (#35)
Plizzari joined Milan when he was just five-and-half years old. His footballing sense was obvious even then, though his father admits that goalkeeping was ultimately more appealing to the younger Plizzari due to the lack of running involved. It took all of 10 minutes for the Milan coaches presiding over the trial to approach the elder Plizzari and make an offer for the child’s services. While Inter also came calling, father and son agreed that the Rossoneri were the better fit. Plizzari has been at the club ever since.
Despite the fact that he’s a part of both Milan’s Primversa side as well as Italy’s under-17 team, Plizzari is a young man of few words. His humility is especially striking considering the level of praise heaped upon him by those who have watched him mature over the years.
“Plizzari is a talent in our youth side that we hope he will follow in the footsteps of those who preceded him,” remarked Filipo Galli of Milan’s youth system. “Though perhaps Donnarumma is unrepeatable.”Date of birth:
