Sinisa Mihajlovic has received some more good news today as the striker & center back have returned to training.
Milan reached the Coppa Italia final last night, beating Alessandria 6-0 in aggregate and on Wednesday coach Sinisa Mihajlovic found more reasons to smile.
As reported on acmilan.com, Luiz Adriano and Philippe Mexes worked with the group for the entire session today and therefore could be in the squad to face Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon.
Diego Lopez, on the other end, worked aside on the central pitch today and in any case there aren’t any plans to bench Gianluigi Donnarumma in the near (or distant) future. Riccardo Montolivo, who wasn’t in the squad for the Alessandria match, also continued with his personalised schedule.
If Montolivo, who was left out of the squad as a precaution due to slight discomfort in the Achilles tendon, can’t make it to Sunday then Andrea Bertolacci will play with Juraj Kucka, Keisuke Honda and Giacomo Bonaventura in midfield. Mattia De Sciglio will also play in the spot of the suspended Ignazio Abate. One of Balotelli and Menez (probably the Frenchman) will start alongside Bacca.
Many things of course can change until Sunday but of course the return of Luiz Adriano could be vital now with M’Baye Niang’s season possibly over due to the car accident he was involved in.
