Sky pundit on the signs that Sandro Tonali is beginning to adapt to Milan: “He is back”

By Oliver Fisher -

Sky pundit Peppe Di Stefano believes that AC Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali is getting back to the levels we saw when he was at Brescia.

The 20-year-old joined from Brescia in the summer and after a slow start he has been getting more and more opportunities to impress, showing growth every time he steps onto the field.

At Brescia he played at the base of a midfield three and he has had to learn and adapt to the midfield double pivot, but as mentioned he is showing with each performance that he is learning tactically.

Tonali reflected on his first few months at the club during a long interview with Sky, but Di Stefano shared his thoughts on the midfielder’s progress under Pioli.

“He played as a starter in three of the last four games, and Sandro Tonali went back to doing what he had done at the time of Brescia and also what he had done with Italian national team, when Roberto Mancini gave him space with great courage,” he said (via MilanNews).

“Now he is back, with his speed and rhythm: he is a 20-year-old boy who has changed his reality, from Brescia to Milan is not easy. Even tactically, he went from a midfield to three to a midfield to two.”
