It’s taken a little while for Suso to find his feet at AC Milan but the Spanish forward endeared himself to the club’s passionate supporters by scoring two goals against Inter on Sunday evening.

The 23-year-old, who joined the Rossoneri after leaving Liverpool in 2015, scored two excellent goals either side of half-time at the San Siro.

However, a last-minute equaliser by Ivan Perisic denied Milan all three points.

Before the match, Suso told reporters that he would walk home on foot if he bagged a brace in the derby.

“If I get two goals on Sunday then I will walk back to my home near the Milanello (training base),” he was quoted as saying by Goal. “I have never scored at home.”

So, after netting twice against Inter, surely there’s footage of him walking the 27-mile journey back home, right?

That isn’t the case, unfortunately.

Suso: I would only walk home if Milan won

Suso backtracked on his promise, insisting he would only walk home if he scored twice and Milan won.

"We didn't win, so I won't walk home," he told Mediaset Premium, per Goal, after the match. "It seemed almost impossible to score a brace, but I did it – and yet we still drew.

"It was a good performance, we just went too deep in the final 20 minutes and allowed Inter to get into gear."

Suso: I'm worthy of a club like Milan

Suso also believes he has now proven he’s worthy of playing for a great club like Milan.

"I wanted to have a chance and Sinisa Mihajlovic only gave me one chance that went badly," Suso added. "I went to Genoa to prove to everyone that I was worthy of Milan.

"We are on the right track, but there's a long way to go."

Good times coming back for Milan?

Milan are currently third in Serie A, level on points with second-placed AS Roma but seven behind leaders Juventus.

The Italian giants aren’t the European powerhouses they once were - they’ve only won one league title since 2004 - but with the likes of Suso, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Manuel Locatelli in their ranks, there’s increasing optimism among the club’s fans that the good times could be coming back.
