MN: Tonali demonstrating his development and charisma in bid to emulate Gattuso

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the stories of 2022 has been the growth of Sandro Tonali, who could become an icon for AC Milan moving forward.

MilanNews begin a report on Tonali by recalling how Gennaro Gattuso was a leader for Milan and became a club legend. Both midfielders have the club in their heart, and Tonali confirmed in a recent interview that he would be happy to stay for life.

“It’s a question that must be asked season by season. This year I would answer yes. But it’s impossible to predict 15-20 years of career,” he said.

It is perhaps too early to make comparisons with Gattuso, but what the Rossoneri No.8 has already given in his first two and a half seasons with Milan is very noteworthy. He waited patiently for his chance, lowered his salary to push through his permanent purchase, scored important goals in the Scudetto win.

Tonali himself knows that his growth has not only been technical and tactical but he has also developed from a personality point of view, becoming a leader despite his young age. The splendid assist for Giroud against Spezia, the winning goal in Verona (again), and other moments testify how Tonali is developing into a difference maker.
