MN: Mystery grows around Tomori’s clear drop in form for Milan

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan have been left very confused by the total drop in Fikayo Tomori’s form which has had a serious effect on the team, a report suggests.

As has been pointed out by Milan News, there is no blatant reason as to why Tomori is unable to put in a good performance right now.

There are a number of possibilities, one of which is the adaptation to a new role in a back three. He has played in a back three before in his career though and he produced good performances when the change was first made.

Another potential explanation is that he is struggling with the pressure of a poor campaign and the fight for the top four. He is a very emotionally led player and he may need the international break to reset his mind.

He is certainly not the only Milan player who is operating well beneath their usual level right now.

  1. It’s not the players, it’s the coach. This outrageous risky high press is such a crapshoot. If it work it looks great but one challenge goes wrong and the whole defense gets pulled out of organization. We should play a more controlled style defense, shame because we got rid of a quality defender in his prime in Romagnoli because he didn’t suit this ultra aggro high press style. Come to find out this style sucks.

    1. IMHO, this style is actually VERY good and suited Milan if/when we were energetic, as evident by the Scudetto won. However, with limited reinforcements and players getting burnt out, this has backfired tremendeously. Can’t keep playing this without rotating players and those players who filled in are just not up to the standard.

      I am still believer and obviously love that gungho style. It is absolutely a joy to watch when we were on different gears with the rest of the league. But, yeah, can’t do that anymore when the forwards aren’t pressing enough (*ahem* Leao), and the whole squad just looked so lethargic. We used to be winning every second ball, now we either just watch it, late to it or went without even challenging it. This is a stark contrast to the covid run and last year’s title run.

  2. Kjaer needs to play. Last time the defense played a perfect match was against Spurs with Thiaw-Kjaer-Kalulu. It’s time to use that trio again. IF we must use the 3 CB line that is.
