A number of players drew praise from yesterday’s 2-0 win over Hellas Verona, but Franck Kessie was again the best of the bunch.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) reports how the thing that stands out is that among the players chosen by Pioli yesterday afternoon, nobody was worthy of a grade below a 6 out of 10.
A score of 7.5 out of 10 with given to ‘the leader’ Franck Kessie as he did everything: carrying the team, neutralising the opponents, protecting the defence and being involved in the build-up.
The two goal scorers Diogo Dalot and Rade Krunic each got a 7 out of 10, as they were good in both phases and above all did not make the team feel the absence of Theo and Calhanoglu too much. The same vote was also awarded to Calabria, who returned to very high levels.
Tomori and Romagnoli deserved a 6.5 as they were rather calm in dealing with Lasagna and his team-mates. Meité got the same score as did Saelemaekers, who knew when to put his foot on the accelerator.
The same score was also given to Gigio Donnarumma, who made some good stops at the end, while Leao and Castillejo each got a 6. The Portuguese still does not give consistency, while the Spaniard did not appear to have an excellent day, but still made a mark.
