It takes time for people to settle.
Bennacer wasn't that bad, he was just too aggressive and a bit reckless. Still useful.

Tonali looks similar to Baka's first months indeed, that's why I'm not giving up on him yet. But it's not wrong to point out he was shit

He's young, he just stepped in Milan from Brescia. He makes too many mistakes now, he's nowhere near Kessie in terms of security.

He will improve in time, after getting more minutes and more matches.

He had a full season at Brescia though, it's not like he's coming from Primavera

Yep. Maybe he needs more confidence and it will come in the next games. He will get minutes for sure and he should improve.

Its not like he played good football there, most of Serie A small clubs play a slow and farmer football. There is difference in Milan.

10m loan fee.
An additional 15m-25m if he's purchased.
2m net salary(more than Bennacer's, almost the same as Kessie's).

That's a large investment.

The club picked him instead of Bakayoko, or a DM who's proven in a double pivot system.

They picked an expensive youngster as backup to the young starters.

They picked a player who looks incompatible with Bennacer as a midfield duo.



Tonali might be and hopefully is a good investment in the long run, but I think it's safe to say he isn't the midfield addition we needed this season.

It is just too early to say that he looks incompatible with Bennacer.

Expensive young players as backup young starters is not false I think. The problem is now that he has not show the form Milan expect from him.

Having 3 quality young midfielder does not break any standard of football, it would be great for the club.

He needs to be faster with the ball and act quicker in his head, get a stronger body to be able to protect the ball better, improve his passing game, improve his position on the field. He is so slow and need to learn how to position himself better on the field. He is so far away from being a reliable player at the moment.

The likes of Kessie and Hakan were mainly shit or average in their first couple of years with us. Now they are two of our most important players.

I wouldn't toss him aside after 2 or 3 starts.

My issue with him for now is that he's too careless on the ball. Also annoying to see his lack of tenacity in the defensive phase. There's a lot that needs to be worked on.

It's a bit premature to write him off after 5-6 games. Both Bakayoko and Bennacer also had a slow start, before they adopted to the system and formed excellent partnerships with Kessie. By time and with more minutes he accumulates, I think we'll see a pretty good midfielder in Tonali.

If his proposed move to Inter went through and he played like this under Conte, he'd throw him under the bus at first opportunity. Fortunately, he has padre Pioli to sort him out and fix his lethargic shortcomings.

No, it would be too early to say he is incompatible with Bennacer as a midfield duo, but not too early to say what it looks like since it goes without saying that it's a conjecture.

There are certainly advantages to having young backups.
It would be great to already have a replacement lined up in case a release clause is activated or someone refuses to renew on reasonable terms.

However if the young backup is not ready, then he's not backup material.

Bakayoko-Anguissa as DM, Roca-Koopmeiners for regista, they costed less than him and could have given something better.

I knew Tonali was only a prospect.

His passing is fast, if he becomes more precise (this is a problem for now) he’ll become a fine regista.

Isn’t he supposed to be a good free-kick taker ?

My question isnt criticism. Just wondering why we are not seeing him take any free-kicks ( if there is another reason than the presence of Hakan and Ibra )
