GdS: Milan players ratings for Monza win – new signings shine; Tomori the worst

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan prevailed in the special game against Monza last night, with it being the first edition of the Trofeo Silvio Berlusconi. The Rossoneri needed a penalty shootout but there were a few players that stood out during the game. 

Christian Pulisic gave Milan the lead in the 29th minute after converting the rebound of a penalty that he won. However, Monza quickly found the equaliser through Andrea Colpano, who found the back of the net just three minutes later. Eventually, the game was decided on penalties (the Rossoneri won 6-5).

As highlighted by Gazzetta Dello Sport, there were a few standout players in the game for Milan. Tijjani Reijnders was the MOTM with a rating of 7/10, showing off his abilities with ‘elegance and effectiveness at once’.

Mike Maignan, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic were slightly behind the Dutchman at 6.5. Especially the Englishman did well, playing to his strengths by driving forward with the ball and shielding it well.

Rade Krunic and Theo Hernandez passed the test at 6. The likes of Pierre Kalulu, Malick Thiaw and Rafael Leao only got a 5.5, which by Gazzetta’s standards is considered a fail.

The worst, however, were Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud at 5. The defender made a big mistake on the goal and continues to be sloppy/unreliable. ‘What happened to the old Fik?’, the paper asks.

    1. I mean how many of a garbage person do you have to be to make a stupid remarks like that? Is your brain not working? Or are you just an ass?

      And it’s funny you talk about balls since you have none.

  1. I have been telling yall: Tomori is finished since Milan – Chelsea 0:2 game.
    It has been almost a year he lost his form. He thinks that he is untouchable. Just bench for 2 months then you will see either improvement or his end. Either way, better than his current form on the pitch

  2. As I said the other day Tomori’s looked shaky as hell since the title win but I have no clue why. If it’s Kessie not being there that still doesn’t really explain him being caught napping so often.

    1. Tomori was only good when he had Kjaer besides him to direct the defense. Unfortunately, Kjaers lack of speed has become a liability after his most recent injury. The defense needs a general and Tomori doesn’t have the mentality for it.

  3. Everyone bashing our defense but no one considers lack of proper DM to be the root cause of the leakage back there. Krunic is not natural DM, he’s a midfield utility patch.

      1. I can’t wait to see who will be blamed for Tomori’s mistakes after Krunic leaves.
        Tatarusanu, the man who was blamed for Tomori’s mistakes Last season is already gone, after Krunic gets sold I wonder who the next victim will be that will be blamed for Tomori being a turnstile in defense.

        1. Bro you can’t seriously talk about Tata, Tata was crap, Tomori just isn’t good at leading the line, and that’s real, that’s why Southgate doesn’t select him. If we should land a CB that can lead I see Tomori losing his place to Thiaw

  4. still have no idea how could Pioli seems so blind and ignorant about these obvious facts. Krunic is not good enough to be our starting player wherever it is, especially DM. Also Giroud is no longer worth to be the main striker, he is just like a statue, does’t contribute to the build up at all. So, we urgently need a proper DM, a real striker and a right back at minimum. Above all, we need a decent coach for real.

  5. 11 Players is be sold at this Month
    And Others are yo be sent out in any means
    Their stay at club is Disavantage.
    Plus S Pioli
    3. Calabria
    4. Loftus Chek
    9. Toure

    1. I will bet 100000000€ for Milan to be selling Sportiello & RLC before ever playing their first Serie A match with the Milan shirt. That’s how confident I am about your comment.

  6. A DM is supposed to help cover the defense. A proper DM. No. Krunic was the worst player on the pitch and basically was walking at a leisure pace.

    Someone said he does things simply. Lol. I think he doesn’t do things effectively at all. He is NOT a DM and was out weakest on the pitch.

  7. So a whole other publication wrote that Krunic was in no way the worst player on the field yet we have the comments blowing up iny one player. This is making me out like some Krunic lover but to me he’s just a very capable backup and he’s needed until the other new signings find their feet if they can. That should be his role.

    And no he wasn’t at fault in the goal. Truth be told it all started with Kalulu high up the pitch causing Thiaw to shift to cover the left forward, and then Timori rotating out to where Thiaw was. It’s why Theo was seen rotating toward where Timori would have been for the goal. The intended pass skimmed off of Timori into the path of the striker. Quite unlucky tbh but it happens. Just that it’s happening to Timori alot so it raises questions. But this was all due to poor reaction as a collective by the backline to adjust. There was nothing Krunic can do on that goal, he was neither in the path of the pass and he was already marking his man. RLC prior to that got out ran by his opponent in the build up to the goal but no one seems to be talking about that 🤔. Smh

  8. Tomori doesn’t have the competition to try and improve. That’s why we need to bring in another reliable CB to step in and challenge Fik and leave Kalulu as a RB back up/emergency slot in. Kjaer isn’t getting any better at this point. So……..
