MILAN, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Milan in midfield is counting on two Italians to keep the Scudetto route firmly.
Milan, Gazzetta: “Tonali and Pobega for an Italian midfield”
“The duo from the Rossoneri midfield also wear the blue: Tonali and Pobega are two Italians from the national team. In the middle the flag of Italy is waving and it hasn’t happened for years: the most recent example is from 2015-’16, with Montolivo and Bertolacci team-mates in the median. Tonali and Pobega, forty-five years in two, certainly have a better perspective. They can almost aspire to Pirlo, Gattuso and Ambrosini, now hundreds of games and dozens of trophies away. Tonali and Pobega are young but with the nature of senators: Sandro has been a Milan fan since he was a child, he wears the 8 in homage to Rino, and transfers faith and passion to the field. Pobega grew up in the Rossoneri youth sector: he knows the values of the school. Pioli recommends him: «he is doing very well, he is less of a setter and more of a raider than the other midfielders. He is a growing player, he is important for us ». Like a true leader, Tonali did everything to be there and tonight he will be there: overcoming the fatigue that had forced him to miss the last two matches in blue. As an aspiring leader, Pobega has climbed the hierarchy: he has already played seven games (5 as a starter, a goal at Dinamo in the Champions League), leaving behind Adli and many other colleagues in the department. Tonali is the lighthouse of the midfield, Pobega seeks new light ”.
