A number of AC Milan players have received praise from La Gazzetta dello Sport this morning in their player ratings from the win over Sampdoria.
The paper (via SempreMilan) has given the team a score of 6.5 out of 10 overall, with head coach Stefano Pioli receiving the same score for his management of a game which became difficult after the red card.
Speaking of which, Rafael Leao is the flop of the match scoring a rating of just 4 after getting two yellow cards and leaving his team-mates with the entire second half to play a man down, while Olivier Giroud was awarded a 7 and the title of man of the match for his winning goal and overall performance.
Moving to the defence, Mike Maignan got a score of 6.5, with Davide Calabria getting a 6, Simon Kjaer and Pierre Kalulu getting the same and then Theo Hernandez earning a 7.
Sandro Tonali (6) and Tommaso Pobega (6.5) did an ok job in the double pivot, while Junior Messias got a 6.5 and Charles De Ketelaere got a 6. Fikayo Tomori, Aster Vranckx and Ismael Bennacer scored 6 for their performances off the bench.
