Christian Gytkjaer doesn’t forget Monza
Gytkjaer shows up in Venice but doesn’t forget recent past
It was a day of introductions at Venezia, particularly for new striker Christian Gytkjaer, who decided to drop down to Serie B after his contract expired with Monza, with whom he went through a three-year stint that culminated with his debut in Serie A last season in the Brianzoli shirt.
And it was precisely to his former team that the Dane wished to dedicate a thought, in a press conference: “The years at Monza were good, I got on well and it was a dream to go up to Serie A. Now I want to try again here, experience the same emotions.”
Then space to future goals with the lagoon club: “I am 33 years old, I feel in top form, I want to score goals and help my new team. Pohjanpalo? We can coexist without problems, we are two strikers who can play together.”
Gytkjaer, born in 1990, arrived in Italy in 2020, when Monza picked him up from Lech Poznan: with the brianzoli he collected 86 appearances between the league (Serie B, promotion playoffs and Serie A) and cups, with 22 goals in total, one of which (the only one in A) allowed Monza to beat Juventus last September 18, thus giving the biancorossi the first historic victory in their history in the top flight.
