Milan defender Fikayo Tomori explained how the club has made him feel immediately at home and why he wants to be one of the greats of Serie A. Speaking to the clubs official channel, the 24-year-old expressed his happiness at joining Milan and his goals for his future with the Rossoneri. He began by addressing the racist incident that took place in the recent 1-0 victory over Cagliari:
After the match we were happy with the result, but then we heard some things.
The whole team, with all the staff, were behind us, even on social media the club made a statement. That’s how a family is. When you’ve got a family like this, it’s easier to lift your head.
When I arrived, I was excited to play for Milan. Everyone makes me feel at home, as if I were still in England.
It’s been a year and two months, but it seems so much longer. I really am very happy here.
I came to Milan because it is a great club with an important history behind it. For me, defenders like Maldini, Stam, Nesta and Baresi are great defenders, and I feel the feeling with this club.
This is the basis of my choice to come and play in Milan. I am happy here even if not many English players have worn this shirt.
