Fikayo Tomori felt a lot of love from his Chelsea teammates and friends after he scored for AC Milan yesterday evening.
Tomori netted his first Rossoneri goal during their 3-0 Serie A victory over Juventus yesterday.
The 23-year-old has earned a lot of admirers in Milan following his loan move from Chelsea in January.
Appreciation from the Blues boys back at home remains strong as well, highlighted by the overwhelming reaction on social media to his latest strike.
Mason Mount was one of many to share their congratulations on Instagram towards Tomori’s achievements.
Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour also added their support for the young centre-back.
Even club legend John Terry got in on the action.
Milan will hope for many more moments like this from Tomori, as they try to tie him down permanently.
Stefano Pioli confirmed in his post-match press conference that he wanted to keep the Blues loanee on a full-time basis.
£25m (Guardian) is Chelsea’s asking price for Tomori’s services.
Of course, Thomas Tuchel might decide to recall the England international ahead of next season
This seems unlikely, given Milan’s stance on the player and the manner in which he was allowed to leave by Frank Lampard.
It was Lampard who initially gave Tomori his big break last campaign, before sending him off to Italy.
Tuchel now has a reputation for giving second chances at Stamford Bridge, in particular to defenders, so a Tomori return cannot be counted out.
