It is no surprise that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was awarded the title of man of the match by Tuttosport in their player ratings from Milan’s 2-0 win over Cagliari.
Perhaps as we should have expected it was Ibrahimovic who had the decisive say in the game as he scored either side of the interval to ensure that the Rossoneri will be top at the half way point of the season.
The paper (via MilanNews) awards Ibrahimovic with a 7.5 out of 10, remarking that the Swede was ‘the best, without a shadow of a doubt’.
It was a grade of 7 for Calabria, and half a point less for Donnarumma, Kalulu, Dalot and Kessié. Romagnoli, Tonali and Diaz all received a 6, while Castillejo and Hauge were criticised (5.5 for both).
The worst score went to Saelemaekers as the Belgian got a four as he ‘leaves his team in under-numbered after 9 minutes on the field’.
