Sandro Tonali was a key player for AC Milan in the 2-1 win against Salernitana and just like his partner Ismael Bennacer, he has started the season well. The duo, as highlighted by Paolo Di Canio, is perfect for the Rossoneri.
Stefano Pioli’s men did really well against Salernitana and probably should have won the game by 4-5 goals. In the end, however, Tonali was the big hero with a lovely assist for Rafael Leao and a nice goal for himself.
Speaking to Sky Italia, the former Italian footballer Paolo Di Canio shared his thoughts on Milan’s midfield tandem. As is the opinion of almost every Milan fan, he believes that the two players make a perfect couple.
“Tonali and Bennacer have become a perfect tandem. They aren’t very tall but have quick steps. Tonali often runs with the ball and restarts the action. They have great quality and great ability to alternate positions as well,” he said as cited by MilanNews.
Indeed, since the departure of Franck Kessie, both have been forced to step up and also perform at a very high level without as much rest. Thus far, Pioli can be very happy with what the two have achieved.
