After Chelsea - Nesta a fan of AC Milan defender Tomori: He can improve further

Former AC Milan defender Alessandro Nesta is a fan of Fikayo Tomori.

The former Chelsea defender has established himself as a first-choice for Milan coach Stefano Pioli, winning praise across Italy for his performances.

After joining in January on-loan from Chelsea, Tomori signed permanently in the summer.

Last season, Tomori played 22 times for Milan, scoring once. This term, he's played in two of Milan's opening three games, helping the Rossonero to a 100 per cent start to the season.

Via TMW, Nesta said, "Tomori has an incredible speed. And room for growth: he can improve further.

"(Alessio) Romagnoli must return to the levels of some time ago, he can succeed. You won't stay at Milan for seven years if you are not excellent players."

Tomori now has a contract with Milan to 2025.

Nesta, meanwhile, also commented on Gigio Donnarumma's departure for PSG.

He continued: "Milan today cannot afford to keep a goalkeeper who asks for 12 million. Considering his choice, he went to a very high level. Of course, Milan lost him for nothing: a shame."

Donnarumma is waiting to make his debut for PSG, having missed preseason after helping Italy to victory in Euro 2020 this past summer.

Nesta spent ten years with Milan, twice winning the Champions League and also winning two Scudetti.
