The boy goes home. Fikayo Tomori this evening will face Chelsea, the club in which he was born in football, with which he grew up, of which he wanted to become a flag. A child’s dream vanished in June 2021, when the roads parted, when Chelsea decided to dump him permanently with a “goodbye my friend “, in exchange for 24 million pounds. Tomori chose Italy and Milan, winning the Scudetto, i Blues have invested over 120 million euros for Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana, but without finding the certainties they were looking for. GROWTH – Many from Cobham’s side they are convinced that they have made a mistake, that they have downloaded an internal resource too hastily. A modern player, that he would have adapted without problems to the idea of football first of Tuchel and then of Potter. The boy born in Calgary, Canada, has become a security of the Milan defense department, as the numbers tell: with him on the pitch, the Rossoneri conceded an average of 0.8 goals per game, without him 1.3. And the figure on the duels won goes from 70 to 57%. According to the British media, much of his evolution passes through Ibrahimovic’s teachings, in training and on the pitch. Tomori has learned to get ‘bad’more aggressive. But also smarter, in reading the game and managing energy. He raised the bar, becoming one of the best in his role, in Italy and in Europe. A regret for Chelsea, an enigma for most of the English who have been asking the same question for months: why does Maguire play in the national team and not him?
