MN: Tomori combines three positions into one as the perfect modern centre-back

By Oliver Fisher -

The impact that Fikayo Tomori has had on AC Milan extends just beyond his own personal skills to the way he has restructured the team.

Milan have started the season well in the league by amassing 19 points out of a possible 21, sitting in second place and two points behind Napoli, but having won two out of three games against other top four rivals plus a draw against Juventus.

MilanNews writes how Fikayo Tomori has been front and centre among the prominent figures so far this season, partnering both Simon Kjaer and Alessio Romagnoli with confidence and becoming more central than ever in Stefano Pioli’s set-up.

Tomori always limits his mistakes to a minimum and is careful in every defensive reading like a centre-back should be, but he can distribute the ball with composure as if he were a Regista and he has the athleticism to cover ground with speed like a full-back.

He was called up by Gareth Southgate for England’s next two qualifiers for Qatar 2022 which shows he is considered a very high level profile. Tomori will almost certainly play alongside Stones in the games against Andorra and Hungary, with the aim of establishing himself in the squad, and it is all thanks to his work at Milan.

  1. I’m so glad hearing this.
    His handwork has earned him a call up.

    However, we need another centre back just like Tomori incase of injuries.
    I don’t have much trust in Romagnoli
