Between jokes and support
A thought for teammates. The funniest? For Diaz “it’s Theo Hernandez. He’s still a child inside. When I arrived he helped me a lot and always plays jokes. Once he put a banana in my shoes.” For Tomori “he is Leao, not for the things he does or says, simply for his way of being”. A comment on Kjaer and Ibra: “Simon is really a great help for the whole team, he is a leader on and off the pitch – says Tomori – and having a player like Zlatan, especially for us as a young team, is a great help. He always wants to win. Having people like this next to lead the team is very important. We are lucky. ” And Diaz: “Ibra is a leader. He tries to help you, he gives you advice. Simon too, but Zlatan pushes you to be the best version of yourself, that’s nice. But to tell the truth everyone helps me, it’s amazing how we are united, we are a family “.
Juve and Inter
Time for memories. The best moment at Milan? For Tomori “there are several, but I choose the match with Juve. Scoring my first goal in that stadium was important for the season”. Brahim focuses on the “derby with Inter, when we beat them at home”. And having to choose the greatest teaching received by Pioli, “I say the pressure – says Diaz -. It helps me on the defense, tells me to press harder”. And Tomori: “The coach helps me to understand where I have to stay on the pitch. He likes to talk to the players, you always learn something from him and always think about you, he gives you confidence, and when you are on the pitch you can simply play”.
Tomori then focused on the difference between our league and the English one: “In the Premier, football is very fast, the intensity is very high. In Italy I noticed that the players are very technical, each team has its own game and there is no It’s an easy game. This is something that surprised me. It’s difficult, but I’m having fun and learning a lot. ” The Spaniard broadens his gaze: “I played in the Premier League and La Liga, Serie A is very difficult. He dominates tactics in some games, intensity for others. because midfielders and defenders play between the lines and I get a lot of balls, so it’s great to be in this team because I can play my game. ”
