GdS: Milan’s expectations of Tonali remain high but the management know he can’t be rushed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan still remain confident that they will see the best from midfielder Sandro Tonali in the coming weeks and months, a report claims.

Tonali has come under fire for not performing as hoped or expected for Milan since transferring from Brescia in the summer. With Ismael Bennancer injured and Franck Kessie suspended, the young Italian has had chances to prove his worth when thrown into the starting eleven in the past few rounds, but many will say he didn’t show as promising signs as were hoped.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) focuses on Tonali, who will start in the Rossoneri midfield today against Bologna alongside Kessie.

The former Brescia man  has not yet taken off as expected, the paper writes, but the head coach Stefano Pioli and management know very well that the maturation time of a boy only 20 years old should not be forced. However, it is undeniable that the expectations of Milan towards Tonali were and remain high.
