17-Year-Old AC Milan Goalkeeper Gets The Tram Home After Making First-Team Squad For The First Time

AC Milan's 17-year old goalkeeper Lapo Nava made the first-team squad for the first time in his fledgling career on Thursday night.

But the youngster appears to be incredibly grounded, after it emerged he got the tram home following his appearance on the bench at the San Siro.

The Rossoneri beat AS Roma 3-1, with regular choice Mike Maignan in between the sticks as per usual.

But No.2 goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu was struck with COVID-19, while third-choice Alessandro Plizzari was out with injury.


That meant that both Antonio Mirante and Nava were on the substitutes bench, with the latter getting the call-up from the Under 18's side.

He didn't take to the pitch but it was a wonderful experience for the youngster, who described it as "an unforgettable evening" on Instagram page.

And Nava ended his night by getting home using public transport, showing he's definitely not getting ahead of himself. Journalist Nicola Schira posted the picture of Nava stood up on the tram, with his AC Milan tracksuit on while on his phone.

Should the shotstopper make his first-team debut for the club, he will become a second-generation player in his family.

Nava's father, Stefano, played 70 times for Milan and replaced the legendary Paolo Maldini in the 4-0 Champions League final thrashing of Barcelona in 1994.

Still yet to sign a professional contract, Nava has played nine teams in all competitions for the youth side.
