GdS: Milan player ratings from Juventus draw – duo impress; Kessie ‘slow and predictable’

By Oliver Fisher -

There was a mixed bag of scores given out by La Gazzetta dello Sport in their player ratings from last night’s 1-1 draw between Juventus and AC Milan.

The paper (via MilanLive) have picked out Brahim Diaz as the best player for the Rossoneri with a score of 7 out of 10 for the Spaniard, who did not lose the ‘battle of the number 10s’ against Paulo Dybala. Ante Rebic also did well and got the same score because – in addition to scoring the equaliser – he showed fight and sacrifice amid a lot of absences.

There were a batch of positive displays too such as Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori, Sandro Tonali and Pierre Kalulu, all awarded with 6.5. The same score was awarded to Ismael Bennacer who certainly sped up the movement of the ball when he came on.

A 6 went to the centre-backs Kjaer and Romagnoli who struggled in difficulty first half due to the space they gave to Juventus, while Alessandro Florenzi got the same score.

In terms of disappointments, Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers did not have their best game and got a 5.5 as well as Theo Hernandez, who appeared shocked after giving the ball away for the first goal, but the real disappointment is Kessie who got a five for being ‘slow and predictable’.

    Tonali was a 7 for me.

    Mr “I want to stay at Milan forever” was less than 5… 3 maybe. It was like he was replaced by Meïté from last season. Distracted, scared to move forward, unsure on and off the ball and always passing to the ball back, never forward. He is lacking that assertiveness and courage.

    Former Il Presidente seems just as scared of his opponents as he is of putting pen to paper and signing that damn contract. I really hope he gets his shit back together.

    Leao and Theo… Those two will give me a heart attack one of these days.

      In my opinion, when Leao and Theo are playing together on the left wing, one of the midfield need to drop back to provide cover. That is the part which is left exposed for counter attack most of the times.

    If Milan’s management has any sense they’ll start looking for a good swap deal for Kessie in Jan right now. He clearly doesn’t want to be at the club any more, and our midfield is strong enough without him.

      I think is time we give tonali and baneser a chance for kessie he wants to leave

  4. BISSARB says:

    Miker I agree with you I think ndombele of totnham will be a perfect swap for kessie.

    1. Rajesh Sah says:

      With his current display, none of the teams would be interested in investing in him except maybe the oil cash clubs

  5. Shal says:

    Tonali is 7. Or even 7.5 considering he had to to work on Kessie’s position as well.
