Fikayo Tomori has opened up on life as a Milan player, admitting his delight at being a part of the Rossoneri, which he has described as an ‘honour’.
Tomori joined Milan initially on loan in January 2021 before making his move to San Siro permanent the following summer, and has since established himself as one of Serie A’s strongest defenders.
Speaking at Dubai 2020 Expo (via Gazzetta dello Sport), Tomori opened up on his time with the Rossoneri so far. When asked what his favourite memory was so far, he explained: “There are several, but I choose the match with Juve.
Scoring my first goal in that stadium was important for the season,” He added, referring to his header in last season’s 3-0 victory.
The 24-year-old also discussed the differences between the Premier League and Serie A: “In the Premier League, football is very fast, the intensity is very high. In Italy I noticed that the players are very technical, each team has its own game and there are no easy games.
This is something that surprised me. It’s difficult, but I’m having fun and learning a lot.”
He also answered questions about relationships with teammates, particularly discussing the importance of Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and how their leadership is beneficial to Milan’s youthful squad, praising their influence on and off the pitch.
