AC Milan

Milos Kerkez officially signed for AC Milan on the 2nd of February, 2021 with the player stating that he could not turn down the move to the Serie A giants after he spoke with club president and legend Paulo Maldini over the phone.

He impressed with AC Milan youth sides and was promoted to the first team where he trained with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Theo Hernandez, etc.

However, It was not all gloom for the Serbian born youngster though as a lack of opportunities saw him fail to make an official first team appearance for the San Siro side which subsequently led to a permanent departure to AZ Alkmaar in 2022.

He made only eight appearances for the U-21 side before he was called up to the Hungarian National team in 2022 and made his debut in a 1-0 win against Germany on the 23rd of September 2022.

Playing Style

Milos Kerkez is a typical modern day fullback who loves to maraud down the left wing while also paying apt attention to his primary defensive role.
The youngster possess an explosive pace , strength and trickery which means he is equally effective at both ends of the pitch. His tenacity and work rate on and off the ball has also seen him draw comparisons with French left back Theo Hernandez.

Our Verdict

Milos Kerkez possesses a huge wealth of talent and is set to be part of a new generation of talented fullbacks set to dominate the football world over the next decade.

However, while his potential cannot be called into question, the same cannot be said for his attitude with the player often referred to as a “difficult” character on occasions.
With that being said, Kerkez will need to work on himself both on and off the pitch especially if he is to reach the very top of the footballing world.
