SM: Kalulu the favourite to replace Tomori in the derby against Inter

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Inter next weekend and will do so without Fikayo Tomori, who is suspended after getting sent off against Roma. Pierre Kalulu is currently the favourite to replace the Englishman. 

Update: Kalulu has sustained an injury and could miss the game.

Tomori was sent off against Roma after receiving his second yellow card and this means he will miss the big game against Inter on Saturday. As highlighted by our colleagues at, Kalulu is the favourite to replace the defender.

In terms of playing style, the Frenchman is certainly more similar to Tomori compared to Simon Kjaer, who is the other option for Stefano Pioli. Furthermore, the Frenchman has been working at Milanello this week while the day has been on international duty.

Kalulu has obviously played a lot as a centre-back for Milan but recently, Pioli has been using him more as a right-back. During the last few training sessions, therefore, the youngster has been able to focus on the tactical side of things for the heart of defence.

  1. Please please please, let’s not start kjear please. Pioli might decide to use kjear. If pioli doesn’t believe in Pellegrino, better start kalulu or even simic. Imagine loosing five straight derby matches.
