Tuttosport: Kalulu-Tomori in force – Milan go a full month without conceding a goal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have gone through the month of March without conceding a goal and it is thanks to their fantastic new centre-back pairing, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) talks about how a replacement for Kjaer was expected to arrive in January after his season-ending injury, but the transfer window closed without a new central defender and the choice has proven to be a good one.

Under the watch of Pioli and with advice from Kjaer, Pierre Kalulu has become an excellent defender and his partnership with Fikayo Tomori has seen the team make a leap in quality. Milan closed the month of March without conceding a goal and while there is plenty of praise to go around for that, the new centre-back pairing were very much key.

In the four games in which Milan started the Anglo-French duo, opposing teams managed to shoot on goal only 7 times, with Maignan making a big save only on Luperto in the match at San Siro against Empoli. In short, there is now reliability, concentration, speed and physical strength that is bringing many benefits.
