MN: Tomori earned permanent Milan move on the pitch – the stats show how crucial he was

By Oliver Fisher -

Fikayo Tomori arrived at Milan as somewhat of an unknown presence, but by the end of his loan spell it became a no-brainer not to keep him.

As MilanNews writes, Tomori’s permanent signing – which was announced earlier today – gives weight to one of the most obvious concepts, the one that hard work pays off. The English defender not only proved to be a great professional but also earned the title of being an irreplaceable brick in Milan’s defensive foundations.

The numbers tell their own story too. In the 17 league games played in his experience at Milan, in addition to the very important goal against Juventus, he was the protagonist of great defensive statistics: 99 balls recovered, 20 clearances, 28 tackles, 60 blocks and 63 duels won.

He did not even receive a yellow card during his loan spell, and the aforementioned is exactly why Milan had to keep Tomori. It shows that Milan are a team with a management that have a clear plan and are capable of convincing young talents like Tomori that they are not only a futuristic environment but above all a team that aims to win again.
