Milan boss Stefano Pioli has hailed the club’s midfielder Sandro Tonali, stating that the youngster has the world in front of him right now.
Tonali scored a rare goal for himself against Atalanta and he helped the Rossoneri go 2-0 up in the first half. Rafael Leao had made it 3-0 in the second half with an impressive finish, as La Dea grabbed two late goals and they proved to be only a consolation.
After the game, Pioli spoke to Milan TV about Tonali and he had high praise for the Italian midfielder. The manager stated: “He has to grow a lot, he has incredible ability. We are talking about a 21-year-old boy who has a world ahead of him, in terms of footballing maturity. Everyone must continue with this attitude, always putting the team in front, and if we do this then we can continue to grow and become even stronger.”
Milan have now made their joint-best start to the season after seven games in the three-points era, equalling their tally from the 2003/04 season. During that campaign, they won the Scudetto under Carlo Ancelotti.
