GdS: Milan ratings for Torino loss – Donnarumma, Kessie and Suso criticised

By Oliver Fisher -

There was no shortage in criticism from La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday following Milan’s defeat against Torino.

The Rossoneri slipped to their third defeat in five games at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin as they surrendered a lead inside the last 20 minutes to lose 2-1.

Krzysztof Piatek’s first-half penalty gave Milan an advantage, but Andrea Belotti equalised for the Granata with a deflected shot in controversial circumstances with the away side appealing for a foul in the build up.

Belotti then scored a second not long after with an acrobatic effort which would be enough to completely knock the stuffing out of Marco Giampaolo’s side and condemn them to another defeat.

You can read our player ratings after the game here, but La Gazzetta have offered their take, starting by giving the head coach a rating of 5.5 overall.

Ismael Bennacer was the MOTM for Milan with a 6.5, while Gianluigi Donnarumma only received a 5 and was therefore the worst performer.

In the back four, both right sided players in Davide Calabria and Mateo Musacchio received 5.5s, while Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez were each awarded 6.

Franck Kessie received a poor score too, with the paper giving him a 5, while Hakan Calhanoglu was given a 6.

In the attacking trident Suso also attracted criticism from La Gazzetta scoring a 5, with Krzysztof Piatek not faring much better (5.5) and Rafael Leao’s 6.5 ratings enough to put him on par with Bennacer.

Finally, substitute Giacomo Bonaventura was given a 6 as he made his return to Serie A action for the first time in 11 months.
