Tomori discusses preseason preparations plus first impressions of Origi and Adli

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori has given some insight on two of the new additions, and offered an update on how the preparations for the new season are going.

There is no doubting that the defensive department became the real strength of Milan during last season’s Scudetto win as the Rossoneri let in just two goals in their final 11 league games, with nine of those being clean sheets.

It is thanks to Tomori and his centre-back partner Pierre Kalulu that Milan were so tough to beat, as the Englishman and the Frenchman formed a duo that was almost impossible to get past.

Milan decided to do something a bit different at their preseason camp as they pulled Tomori and Kalulu to one side for a question and answer session based on what fans had asked on social media. transcribed the responses of the Englishman.
