Sandro Tonali decided to leave AC Milan this summer to join Newcastle United in the Premier League. And perhaps he did not expect that he would reunite with his old team so soon, in an unfriendly situation.
Accordingly, at dawn this Wednesday, The Magpies will face the Rossoneri in Group F of the 2023/24 Champions League. Before the confrontation, Milan defender Fikayo Tomori spoke about the duel with his former teammate. Daily Mail quoted the former Chelsea star:
“Obviously it’s good to see him again. We were together in many matches. It’s good to see Tonali again so soon after he left. But we are professional players. Once the match starts, the friendship will disappear Because we all want to win.
After the competition, we can be friends again. But in confrontation, there is no place for friends.”
Tomori hopes to return to Milan’s starting lineup, after the recent 5-1 loss at the hands of Inter. It must be recalled that it was the Nerazzurri who eliminated the “neighbor” from Europe’s most prestigious club-level tournament last season.
