Simon Kjaer was heavily praised for his performance in last night’s 1-0 victory against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
MilanNews have compiled his ratings from the papers, with La Gazzetta dello Sport giving him a 7 out of 10 and writing: “Leave the ball to him when chaos reigns, and he will put it in the bank.”
Il Corriere dello Sport (7) said his ‘head and foot is the usual guarantee’ adding that he ‘didn’t miss a point’. Il Corriere della Sera (7.5) writes: “Tactical and character leader, always anticipates Suarez and Griezmann.”
MilanNews (7.5) went further by writing: “He will have an important weight in the hand luggage that he brings to Milan: Luis Suarez.”
