MN: From doubts to certainties – numbers show Tonali’s importance with two targets in mind

By Oliver Fisher -

Sandro Tonali stepped up to the plate last night and produced an excellent performance to help his side win against Torino at the San Siro.

MilanNews writes how Tonali was once again among the best on the pitch for the Rossoneri in what was a far from vintage performance from Stefano Pioli’s side against a team that have shown themselves to be very hard to break down.

The doubts over the summer pertaining to whether Tonali would be bought permanently are now behind us and he continues to justify the faith shown by the management, having moved up a gear following first season struggles.

Pioli’s trust in the Italy U21 international is clear to see too. In the final 10 games of last season Tonali totalled 113 minutes played at an average of 11.3 per game, while in the first 10 this year he has amassed 716 minutes at an average of 71.6 per game.

He is commanding the midfield with personality, creating threat from set pieces and now for Tonali the target is to win a trophy with Milan and a spot on the national team.
