Tuttosport: Four Milan players impressed in final pre-season test – from Calabria to Giroud

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan took part in their final friendly clash of the pre-season last night and beat Panathinaikos by two goals to one. Several players impressed, including Olivier Giroud who scored a brace in the first half. 

Today’s edition of Tuttosport (see below) analysed the performances of the Rossoneri players and highlighted four players that did well. The first was Davide Calabria, who wore the captain’s armband and got himself a lovely assist for Giroud.

The second was Fikayo Tomori, who just like Calabria got an assist for the Frenchman up front. The former Chelsea man, albeit against a somewhat weak opponent, was calm in possession and also did everything right in the defensive phase.

Ante Rebic also impressed in the forward duo, playing alongside Giroud in what was a 4-4-2 formation. The Croatian had some good plays with his teammates and also nearly got on the scoresheet, which was the only thing missing for him.

And of course, finally, Giroud was the big star for the Rossoneri as he secured the win with his two goals. It’s clear that he will be an important player for the team.

  1. Tuttosport is very bad in assessment and has no idea about Milan’s game. Calabria, Salamankers, Rebic and Giroud are the weakest links in Milan. Not looking at last night’s match against a very weak opponent Panathainakos who would be defeated and Modena Milan has serious problems. played so far since April 2021 Rebic could not hold the ball in possession of 5 seconds, adding zero attack zero .. Rebic is out of the game totally. Giroud is just an old man and a weak striker who can’t do anything in Serie A. Against Panathainakos he scored two goals, of course Panathainakos and my grandfather would give a goal. I think it will be seen against Samdoria how weak a player Giroud is. to be the captain of the team because there is nothing good for him to be that, he is not the leader and he does not have the advantage that the players listen to him on the field because he needs to be told what to do on the field. Calabria is slow problems can bypass Calabria.
