Sandro Tonali - The Next Andrea Pirlo?

Recommended Posts

The wonderkid is being linked with just about everybody at the moment. Here's more about his background:

Born on May 8, 2000 in Lodi, a Northern Italian town near Milan, Tonali joined Brescia's youth ranks in 2012, when his former club Piacenza officially declared bankruptcy.

The youth coaches at Brescia decided to change his role on the pitch, switching him from an inventive and creative second striker to a regista, the deep-lying playmaker role embodied by a former Brescia player, Pirlo.

In his new position, Tonali powered through the youth ranks, often playing against older opposition and making his way into the development squad at 16 years of age.

He eventually made his professional debut on August 26, 2017, in a clash against Avellino and went on to make 19 more appearances throughout the rest of the campaign and has become a regular this season.

Tonali stood out in the Under-19 European Championships last summer, leading Italy to the final where they lost 4-3 to Portugal, establishing himself as one of the brightest young players in Italian football.
