Tuttosport: Milan player ratings for Man Utd loss – centre-backs praised; midfielder ‘ruins everything’

By Oliver Fisher -

Tuttosport have given their player ratings for last night’s Europa League exit against Manchester United, with a lot of average scores.

The paper (via PianetaMilan) state that Fikayo Tomori was the best on the pitch for the Rossoneri, as he was awarded a 6.5 out of 10. His tackle on Dan James in the first half was excellent, and it was ‘yet another good performance’. Simon Kjær also got a 6.5, as he ‘helped Kalulu with Rashford’.

The Rossoneri coach Stefano Pioli got a 6 out of 10 as ‘it was really difficult to do more’ without a striker for the first hour, and in the 180 minutes ‘Milan deserved to go through’.

Gianluigi Donnarumma got a 6 as he was beaten by Pogba’s effort at the near post, as did Pierre Kalulu who ‘did not lack personality’, while Theo Hernández got the same. Alexis Saelemaekers received a 6 too as did the returning Zlatan Ibrahimović.

Then come the disappointments: a 5.5 for Diogo Dalot, for Franck Kessié – who ‘starts slowly, then slowly engages’ – and Hakan Çalhanoğlu who ‘failed to affect key moments’. Brahim Díaz, Samu Castillejo and Rade Krunić all got a 5, as did Soualiho Meïte as he ‘ruins everything at the beginning of the second half, when he fails to sweep away the ball which Pogba then sends into the goal’.

    The hate for Dalot palpable. I get it, you guys don’t like him. Before he came on there were no proper crosses from the previous right back for an entire 60 mins of play. Yet he gets a worse rating than Kalulu (not staying that Kalulu didany better or worse either) and one of the worst players on the pitch, come on?. Plus he came on with only 30mins to influence the game. At least he sent in decent crosses

      These are Tuttosport’s player ratings, not ours!
