Surprises me if I am reading that right, as he has always looked pretty quick to me. I wonder if this is a case of a young player being overhyped and then the fans turning on him when he hasnt produced the insane levels were hoped.....or its to do with the contract and fans being bitter?I frequent a few Milan forums and the player's performance thread mirrors what we've seen on here with Bailly, Lindelof etc. The Milan fans don't seem to rate him highly at all. The quoted post below was particularly concerning from one of the Milan fans.
"Yesterday he played better precisely because with Tomori on the pitch we can stay 15 meters higher without fear of being inexorably punctured and we showed throughout the championship that if we keep the team short we are suffocating and very dangerous to restart".
"Romagnoli is always the same ... a good defender nothing more, the difference is made by the partner".
Was lauded as the next Nesta, young captain etc etc.
He isnt at that level, never was for me....but he certainly looks better than most of the centre backs we have been linked with. To be fair, I wanted us to sign him 4/5 years ago an dhave every season since, but I havent seen as much of him the last year or two as dont watch much Italian football now and he has been injured it seems most of the time I have watched them this season. But just about ever big club has been lnked with him at some point and I have seen a lot of big managers who are knowledgable on centre backs speaking highly of him such as Ancelotti. Seems this last season attitudes have changed, but then again of course the clubs fans he plays for see far more of him than any of us
