Old school CB's usually stick close, knock their opponents down and use aggression and inch perfect timing to dominate their opponents though. Also this issue is similar to Tonali, the price-tag (in this case the salary and that he is captain) is brining far more criticism.
I never had much issue with him before this season; I expected him to take that step with the team as they ascended but he has regressed and has been exposed plenty. I lost it in the Genoa game last December and now I just hope he will turn in acceptable performances and not be the glaring weak link as I doubt he will be benched.
Ale was atrocious once he came back, but he's turned in quite a few strong captain performances in 2021. If he plays well, people smirk and when he has an off day there's 20 posts in here calling for his head.
I have my doubts about him and sometimes rue that he's captain. It makes it a harder situation when he's not performing. I'd give a lot to know what Maldini actually thinks of him.
