Tonali really looks like Pirlo


Sandro Tonali once stated that he did not want to be equated with Andrea Pirlo. In fact, Tonali really resembles Pirlo.

AC Milan against Cagliari last weekend at the San Siro. The Rossoneri won 4-1 through Sandro Tonali’s opener from a free kick, which was also his first goal in a Milan shirt.

The goal became the discussion of football fans. The reason is because of the goal Sandro Tonali this is very similar to Pirlo’s first goal with AC Milan.

Pirlo scored his first goal for Milan in March 2002 against Parma at the San Siro in an Italian League match. The dropout from the Brescia youth team packed it in the 78th minute through the same point and the ball went into the same corner as Tonali.

Tonali and Pirlo’s resemblance is also due to both having graduated from Brescia and making their professional debut there. However, the 21-year-old midfielder never wanted to be equated with Pirlo.

Tonali admitted that he idolized Gennaro Gattuso more. From the man named the Rhino, Tonali learned about courage.

“Comparison with Pirlo, he inspires me but I have never seen another player like him. Maybe our hair is the same. My role model is (Gennaro) Gatusso in terms of courage on the pitch,” Tonali said in November 2018.

Gattuso besides being a Milan legend, he also coached at the San Siro from November 2017 to May 2019. Sandro Tonali have not had the chance to experience being coached by Gattuos because they only joined in September 2020.
