AC Milan

Ex-Chelsea star Tomori warns there is ‘trouble’ if Ibrahimovic’s team-mates don’t ‘pull weight’


FIKAYO TOMORI has revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic demands such high standards at AC Milan that players can’t even switch off during foot-golf.

The iconic Swede turns 40 next month but is showing no signs of slowing down or lowering the expectations he puts on his team-mates.

Former Chelsea defender Tomori made his loan move to Milan permanent in a £25 million deal this summer.

And when it comes to life at the San Siro, Tomori admitted there is only one man who rules the roost.

“He’s all about winning,” Tomori told the Daily Mail after bagging a foot-golf victory with Ibra and Brahim Diaz.

“Even in foot-golf, he’s telling us, ‘we can’t lose, we can’t lose,’ and we ended up winning.

“Whether we’re playing mini games or 11-v-11 in training, or it’s a quick game of handball before training, he wants to win and when he does win, he lets everyone know about it.

“I think that spurs him on and the people around him.

“You don’t want to be on Zlatan’s team and not pull your weight because if you don’t there’s going to be trouble.

“He’s such a big personality and his presence raises everyone’s game. He’s a winner and it transfers to the rest of the team.”

Tomori is not the only Chelsea academy graduate now plying his trade in Serie A.

Striker Tammy Abraham recently completed a move to join former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Roma.

Defender Tomori revealed the pair spoke as Abraham weighed up the decision and was eager to encourage his friend’s move to Italy.

He added: “When he first got to know about Roma he asked me about life in Italy and what I thought about the league.

“I said, ‘I was here for six months and I signed permanently, that should tell you a lot’.

“He’s enjoying it, and he’s started really well. Tammy is a goalscorer, he will score goals, hopefully not against Milan.”
