AC Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali has talked about his tattoos and revealed that he made his grandmother become a Milanista.

On Milan TV (via, Tonali talked about the story behind the tattoos, the most precious of which is the one dedicated to his grandmother who he admitted to having made a Milan fan.

“Grandma is one of the most important people both when I was little and now she is one of the few people who calls me both after I have scored a goal, before a heartfelt match, a derby and tells me that she will be in front of the TV watching me. I made her become a Milanista.”

On which was the most painful: “After the first one I did, I said I don’t do any more then with the passage of time you feel like trying to make others again, it was like that for me too. The most painful was that of my dog, done in a single session divided into several hours because I was in pain.”

On his family: “On the one hand there is me as a child with my first jersey number 34 when I was in Brescia, and my grandmother’s date, then on the other side a cross with a lion inside and then all the rest: for my family, for my father for my mother, my brother and sister are missing.”
