‘Ogbonna will be a great’

Former Torino boss Gianni De Biasi is sure that Angelo Ogbonna – a possible replacement at Milan for Thiago Silva – will be a future star.

The Italian international, part of the Azzurri’s Euro 2012 squad, is being linked with a possible move from Toro to the San Siro after Silva was sold to Paris Saint-Germain.

“Replacing Thiago Silva will not be easy for anybody,” De Biasi noted to Sky Sport Italia. “But Angelo will certainly have an important future.

“Angelo can play as a full-back or in the middle of a four-man defence. He can still improve as a player and he has the qualities to do well in Serie A.”

The 24-year-old is a product of Torino’s youth system who spent the 2007-08 campaign on loan at Crotone.
