Milan legend Baresi heaps praise on Chelsea loanee Tomori: “He can only improve”

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan defender Franco Baresi has heaped praise upon Fikayo Tomori for the impact he has made since joining on loan from Chelsea.

Tomori arrived at Milan in January on a six-month loan from Chelsea, where he had been struggling to get playing time, and the initial signs from the Englishman have been very good so far as he has made eight appearances across all competitions.

The English centre-back has quickly adapted to Italian football and Stefano Pioli’s system, even benching the Rossoneri’s captain Alessio Romagnoli. It’s clear, therefore, that he has the qualities to become a very good player.

During his interview with The Times, Milan’s honorary vice president praised the impact of Tomori, who he believes will only get better from here.

“When he was called to play he did well. He is young, he is assuming the mentality that asks him Milan and begin to understand our league. I think he can only improve, because he has fantastic quality,” he said (via MilanNews).

Tomori for his part revealed yesterday that he is very much enjoying life in Italy and the chance to play for such a prestigious club steeped in history.
