Ex-AC Milan coach Capello hails Chelsea defender Tomori

Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello admits he's a fan of Fikayo Tomori.

The on-loan Chelsea defender was outstanding for victory over Roma yesterday.

Capello enthused: "As a coach I always wanted a fast defender.

"Milan in history has always been built on defence, if you have a fast player it's fortunate.

"A fast player is so important, the recovery in the first half on (Borja) Mayoral was fantastic, without making a foul."
