'Wow': Reece James and Hudson Odoi amazed by what 24-year-old has done, just a year after leaving Chelsea

Ex-Chelsea player Fikayo Tomori celebrated winning the Serie A title yesterday with AC Milan, which prompted reactions from the likes of Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Tomori, who the Blues sold to Italian giants Milan a year ago, is now a league champion.

The 24-year-old defender has been an integral player for Stefano Pioli’s side this season, who clinched the Serie A league crown yesterday on the final day.

He’s yet another supreme talent out of the Chelsea academy at Cobham that’s enjoying major success in the senior game elsewhere. Unfortunately, he’s someone Thomas Tuchel’s side can no longer call upon.

Incidentally, Jose Mourinho claims he’s an English talent that’s got better since moving overseas.

Tomori wins Serie A

It’s a massive achievement for Tomori to win a Serie A title medal.

Surely, England manager Gareth Southgate needs to bring him back into the fold due to his imperious individual performances at centre-back.

He uploaded an Instagram post yesterday shortly after his amazing achievement. Ex-Chelsea teammates James and Hudson-Odoi were among those to respond.

Chelsea would love him now

It’s obvious when you look now that the Blues really should’ve kept Tomori, especially since there’s a potential defensive exodus happening at Stamford Bridge this campaign.

He looked good enough during his time in the Blues first team, but went to pursue guaranteed football elsewhere over in Italy.

Nobody predicted the government sanctions that were going to hit the club, though.

Tuchel’s Chelsea definitely need to go sign a couple of centre-halves this summer once they’re allowed and frustratingly a player with Tomori’s physical attributes would be perfect.
