After moving to Italy from his native Poland last summer, Krzysztof Piatek has quickly established himself as a household name in the country with 25 goals (all competitions) to his name in just 26 appearances.
The 23-year-old was signed as a relatively unknown player by Genoa in July last year but quickly showed his pedigree with 19 goals during his short stint with the club.
His goal-scoring feats caught the attention of the bigwigs at Milan, who immediately bought him in to replace Gonzalo Higuain, when the Argentine moved to Chelsea during the January transfer window.
The change in clubs certainly didn’t affect Piatek, who marked his debut match with a superb brace against Napoli to take the Rossoneri into the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia and has since gone on to score 4 more goals to take his total tally to 6 in just 5 appearances for the club.
Piatek was at it again on Sunday and spearheaded a crucial 3-1 comeback win over Atalanta which was a big boost for Milan’s Champions League aspirations and manager Gennaro Gattuso will surely be relying on the striker to fire the club towards its objectives.
With a total of 17 league goals to his name, the youngster now finds himself only two goals behind Cristiano Ronaldo in the goal-scoring charts in the Serie A.
While even the striker himself has admitted how he has been left surprised by his quick-fire start to life at the San Siro, the AC Milan fans just can’t seem to get enough of him and have already come up with a pretty catchy chant to adore their new signing.
Mirroring the attacker’s goal celebration of a pistol shooter, the “Piatek! Pum pum pum pum!” chant has quickly caught on ever since it was first heard after Piatek’s first brace against Napoli last month.
While several great versions have been heard since then, perhaps the best version of the chant came from this group of Milan fans who absolutely got the rendition spot on.
Goosebumps inducing stuff! Check out the brilliant chant here:
