AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori has admitted that he was disappointed not to be called up for the World Cup, and set the target of winning more trophies.
It has certainly been a positive year for Tomori as he played a very big role in the side that won the Scudetto back in May, forming an almost unbeatable pairing alongside Pierre Kalulu, conceding just twice in the final 11 games of the campaign.
However, this wasn’t enough to convince Gareth Southgate when it came to selecting the England squad for the World Cup, with supporters and large sections of the media questioning the decision not to call him up.
Tomori is currently with the rest of the squad at the Dubai training camp ahead of the resumption of the season, and he spoke from there to SportMediaset about the year of 2022 and what the future holds, with MilanNews relaying his comments.
On the missed call-up for the World Cup: “Obviously there was disappointment because I wanted to go to the World Cup. Now I have to do more to go to the 2024 European Championships. I have to keep working and let’s see.”
On the Scudetto race: “We want to win again. We won last year, the feeling when you win is incredible. This year it will be more difficult.”
On scoring goals: “I wanted to improve on this aspect. My job is to defend the goal, if I do it and we win, that’s enough for me.”
