Tuttosport: Milan player ratings for Napoli defeat – eight players score below a six

By Oliver Fisher -

Sandro Tonali is one of the only players who could walk off satisfied after last night’s 1-0 defeat to Napoli, according to Tuttosport.

The paper (via PianetaMilan) gave Tonali a rating of 6.5 out of 10 with the following comment: “Pioli asks him to position himself between the two centre-backs to build a three: the task succeeds, even if it does not bear much fruit. But he is still growing.”

Pioli got a 5.5 out of 10, but the paper acknowledges that without seven starters it was logical that sooner or later a match like this would arrive. Despite this, with the changes he made, the equaliser did not come.

Fikayo Tomori, Matteo Gabbia, Brahim Díaz and Alexis Saelemaekers all got a 6 out of 10, the latter two in particular praised for their impact off the bench and Tomori for adapting to early danger.

Gianluigi Donnarumma got a 5.5 out of 10 as he spent some of the second half arguing with the Napoli bench, while Diogo Dalot got the same after a ‘difficult evening with an inspired Insigne’ as did Soualiho Meïte.

Theo Hernández and Franck Kessié got a 5, and it is mentioned that the Ivorian was allowed a bad evening given that he has carried the team for weeks. Samu Castillejo, Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Rade Krunić got the same, with all three deemed anonymous.

Finally, a score 4.5 for Rafael Leão and a 4 for Ante Rebić who ‘ruined everything’ with his abusive remark to the referee.

    I think that giving Rebic the score 4 is completely nonsense…he was playing good until he was ejected from the game. Not to mention that he was ejected in 2′ of additional time. Somebody who didn’t watch the game would think that he is the problem that Milan has lost yesterday.
