“Three years ago, I played in this formation, I remembered some of it,” Tonali told MilanTV. “After three years of 4-3-3 it was a bit difficult at first, but I’m adapting because it’s a train I need to get on.

“Playing with Kessie helps a lot, he understands you and helps you a lot on the pitch.

“He understands the different moments. He’s very intelligent.”
