Fikayo Tomori has talked about how he feels ‘proud’ when the team keep a clean sheet after AC Milan ran out 2-0 winners against Genoa last night.
It was far from a classic at San Siro between a side struggling for goals and their visitors who are battling relegation, but a goal early and one late on sealed a vital victory for the Rossoneri who stay top over Easter, responding well to the doubts that have arisen and to Inter’s win over Spezia.
Rafael Leao’s well-taken volley opened the scoring for the evening, and although Junior Messias needed two goes to bury the ball inside the final 10 minutes, he eventually did so to ensure that the points were staying in Milano.
It was also a sixth consecutive clean sheet in the league which is an incredible record, and Tomori spoke to DAZN this after the game to reflect on the win, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
On not conceding again: “We are proud not to concede goals across several matches. Even today we managed to do so and we also won, so we are happy.”
On the battle against Immobile next week: “He is a great striker. We will have to do better because Lazio are a strong team. We hope to win.”
On the chemistry with Kalulu: “We get along well. Pierre is a great player, we work well together. He wants to learn a lot. I felt good with Gabbia tonight too. Kalulu is a bit like my little brother.”
On his background at Milan: “When I arrived here, the team and the staff helped me a lot. I’m happy at Milan. They also help me to learn Italian, I’m still learning.”
On the Scudetto: “We have to think only of us, play our game and then we will see where we will arrive. We are first even if Inter have one game less, but we must continue to believe in it.”
On the English players in Serie A: “Abraham is having a great season. We always want to do our best. I talked a lot with Abraham, we are both happy in Italy.”
