AC Milan fans must be patient with Sandro Tonali, a report claims, as he is starting from a base that is a bit further back than most of the other squad members.
Tonali is for the moment an alternative to the immovable pairing of Bennacer and Kessie, but as he grows and develops he could begin to challenge one or both.
Obviously the double pivot has been one of the strengths of Milan’s run of 20 games without defeat, yet with a compact schedule Tonali will get his chance.
As Friday’s edition of Il Giornale (via MilanNews) notes, in yesterday’s match against Celtic it seemed that Tonali occasionally found himself in difficulty.
However, it must be noted that the 20-year-old has not had the easiest of preseason preparations as he had a troubled physical recovery and he is learning a new role on the pitch.
As a result, he will need time to understand the mechanisms, his position and improve his pace.
