AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori has revealed that he is ready for the new season after the Rossoneri lost on penalties against Valencia.
Milan continued their pre-season yesterday evening away at Valencia, following the 1-1 draw against Nice on Saturday. Although it ended up being a loss on paper, the performance was encouraging from the Rossoneri.
In the first half, Milan had a plethora of chances and looked very sharp on many occasions. However, the final touch was missing and thus they remained scoreless as the referee blew for half-time. Rafael Leao did have a goal incorrectly ruled out for offside, which would have ended up being the winner, but nonetheless it was an encouraging display.
Tomori spoke to Milan TV after the game about his current condition and the way preseason preparations are going, with his comments transcribed by Calciomercato.com.
“It’s a pity we didn’t manage to win on penalties, but the goal of the pre-season is to get in shape. We played against a good one. team and it’s nice to see the fans back at the stadium,” he said.
“We are fine, there were no injuries and it’s positive. Real Madrid are waiting for us on Saturday, it’s a difficult game but it will be another opportunity to find the rhythm of the game.
“I’m fine, I’ve stayed in shape. I’m ready for the new season, I’m energised. I’ll play my first season in full and I’m happy, everyone is. I’m really fine, we hope to continue like this.”
