Gds: The best AC Milan players against Valencia

AC Milan face Valencia yesterday in Spain. Several Rossoneri new signings made a great appearances reports Gazzetta.

AC Milan will return to in Italy this afternoon without the Naranja Trophy, but Stefano Pioli brings several positive signs with him to Milanello from last night’s friendly match against Valencia, lost by the Rossoneri on penalties.

In the 90 minutes, which ended goalless, AC Milan showed to already be in good physical condition, despite facing a team ahead in their preparation as La Liga will start in a week. The match should have ended in Rossoneri’s favor with a goal from Rafael Leao cancelled unjustly.

DIAZ THE BEST – Today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport analyzes the performance of the Red and Blacks and highlights above all the display of Brahim Diaz, undoubtedly the best on the field in the Rossoneri ranks. The Spaniard has in fact shown many excellent plays, he has always been in the midst of action and in the second half he even missed the goal, which was denied him only by a miraculous intervention from the Valencia goalkeeper. Fikayo Tomori was rock solid in defence while Ballo-Toure looks far from being a threat for Theo.

NEW SIGNINGS – There was great curiosity among the fans to see the new signings Mike Maignan and Olivier Giroud at work too. The French goalkeeper appeared very confident, he made a great saved on Cheryshev and remained unbeaten even yesterday after not conceding a goal against Nice.

Giroud, unlike what was expected, entered the field in the second half. This time he did not score during the 90 minutes but he transformed his penalty with great confidence during the penalty kicks. The Frenchman still needs to get minutes in his legs but he is destined to become a point of reference for AC Milan very soon. The former Chelsea striker is already a leader on the pitch.
