Former AC Milan defender Franco Baresi praised Fikayo Tomori for the impact he has had since joining on loan from Chelsea.
Tomori joined Milan in January on a six-month loan from Chelsea, where he had struggled to buy time, and the Englishman’s first signs were very good, having made eight appearances in all competitions.
The English central defender quickly adapted to Italian football and Stefano Pioli’s system, also putting AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli on the bench. It is clear, therefore, that he has the qualities to become an excellent player.
During his interview with The Times, AC Milan’s honorary vice president praised Tomori’s impact, which he believes will only get better from here.
“When he was called to play he did well. He is young, he is taking on the mentality that Milan asks of him and is beginning to understand our league. I think it can only get better, because it has fantastic quality, “he said (via MilanNews).
Tomori for his part revealed it yesterday he is enjoying life in Italy very much and the chance to play for a club so prestigious and rich in history.
