AC Milan director Maldini: Why Chelsea defender Tomori ahead of Romagnoli

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini knows Alessio Romagnoli is unhappy.

The club captain has lost his place to Chelsea loan signing Fikayo Tomori.

“Fortunately, I work for a club that has an effect on players. When AC Milan call, the players always listen," Maldini told Sky Sport Italia.

“Fikayo is a player with particular characteristics, pace and intensity, so we thought he could be a good reinforcement for this second half of the season.

“Naturally, Romagnoli isn't happy, no player is when he doesn't play. However, Milan are 17 points better off than last season, we're second despite having more commitments and many injuries, so squad rotation is necessary and Alessio has played pretty much every game."
