Ajax Acquisition Lucca: ‘Proud to Wear the Shirt He Once Wear’

Lorenzo Lucca is proud to follow in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In his first interview as Ajacied, the 21-year-old Italian praises the forty-year-old center striker.
Lucca was officially presented by Ajax on Thursday evening. Opposite the club channels, he explains that Ibrahimovic played a role in his choice for the Amsterdammers. โ€œMy biggest idol is Zlatan Ibrahimovic,โ€ he says. โ€œWhen I was little, I watched a lot of videos of him. I‘m proud to wear the shirt he once wore.โ€
The brand new addition knows that he still has to do a lot to achieve the same as the Swede. โ€œYou can’
t compare us, maybe only in terms of stature,โ€ says the 2.01 meter long striker. โ€œZlatan was one of the best strikers in Europe, I still have many aspects to work on.โ€ That is exactly what Lucca intends to do. โ€œI‘m here to work hard, every day.โ€
Lucca is rented from Pisa until the end of the season. The people of Amsterdam stipulate an option to buy, which amounts to less than ten million euros.
