Pioli happy with first impressions of Chelsea loanee Tomori: “A great desire to learn”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has revealed that he has had positive first impressions from new signing Fikayo Tomori.

On Friday evening, Milan announced the signing of Tomori on loan with an option to buy from Chelsea. After some tough negotiations the Rossoneri were able to announce the signing, and we have done an in-depth analysis of the player which you can read here.

The defender was called up straight away for the Atalanta clash, but understandably didn’t make his debut, though that did come in Tuesday’s Coppa Italia clash against Inter as he replaced the injured Simon Kjaer in the first half.

The 23-year-old centre-back had made just one appearance in the league for Chelsea this season and Milan spotted an opportunity, one that Pioli is happy has been taken.

Speaking at his press conference on the eve of the match against Bologna, the head coach said (via MilanNews): “Well, he showed good things. He presented himself well, has good qualities and is also very intelligent and with a great desire to learn.”
