Milan are now preparing to face Napoli at San Siro on Sunday evening, hoping to take advantage of the important away win against Hellas Verona. Some players will return from the street, including Sandro Tonali.
The midfielder was not 100% fit for Thursday’s game against Man Utd, but he entered the second half and did very well. So on Sunday he will certainly be eager to show off his qualities in what will be a very important match.
It is a special match for Tonali, not only for the weight of the match, but also because Gennaro Gattuso is the Napoli coach. The Milan legend is the idol of the young man and from time to time they talk to each other.
Tonali also called Gattuso to ask permission to wear the number 8 shirt with the Rossoneri, which he obviously got. In an interview with Sky Italia, as quoted by MilanNews, the ex from Brescia spoke about their relationship.
In the next match you will challenge Gattuso’s Napoli …
“We talk from time to time. He is like a dad in the world of football to me: he can give you advice, both as a person and as a footballer. We don’t talk very often, but every now and then during the season. “
What does he say to you?
“He always makes fun of me. That’s how it is, let’s say that he praises you little and always expects a lot from everyone: it is right that it should be so “.
