Tomori admits he was 'angry' after disappointing Chelsea return & reveals AC Milan want to 'redeem themselves' in return fixture

  • Tomori returned to Chelsea after leaving in 2021
  • Lost 3-0 to Blues in Champions League
  • Said he wanted to 'cancel' the performance

WHAT HAPPENED? Tomori's homecoming didn't exactly go to plan as his former team Chelsea saw off AC Milan with relative ease last week, running out 3-0 winners. The centre-back was hoping to show the Blues exactly what they were missing but was at fault for one of the goals and has since said the manner of the result made him 'angry.'
WHAT HE SAID: After scoring in Milan's 2-0 win over Juventus on the weekend, Tomori told reporters: "After the match against Chelsea I was angry and I wanted to give everything on the pitch, when I scored the goal [vs Juve] that was my feeling. I wanted to cancel the performance against Chelsea and I expressed how I felt. We are here tomorrow to redeem ourselves. Against Chelsea it wasn't the real Milan and it wasn't the reaction we wanted. We know we have to learn from this match."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The English defender has been in fine form since his move to Italy in 2021. He was an ever-present figure in Milan's side last season, making 31 appearances in the league as they lifted the Scudetto for the first time in over a decade.
