Luiz Adriano and Mexes return to training with the squad, could be available against Sassuolo


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, 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.

Menez should start beside Bacca and Luiz Adriano should come as a substitute. If Menez can regain his form, he and Bacca would be dangerous against any defense. And I honestly believe we didn’t give as much playing time to Luiz Adriano as we did to other strikers.


Juve just won on penalties lolz inter must be gutted. Oh well better for us now. Juve wins the league doesn’t matter what happens to is in the coppa hopefully a win. All is good we r in Europe. Finally we r back. FORZA MILAN woooooooooo


Damn… But still, one more motivation to win a trophy finally!


So if juve win copa and serie a then european league ticket will not be given to copa runner up but to 6th positioned team in serie a? What difference does that make given milan is almost certain going to finish among top 6 in serie a?
Better still, why dont we have optimism that milan will beat that stupid grinning allegri’s juve?


Menez bacca
Bona berto kucka Honda
Anto Roma zapata/Alex De
We r winning this match


Mexes has been passionate player and a true rossonero but i think his time at milan is up.

L adriano has good finishing and from what i saw from his milan matches, he plays with heart and drive so i think there is no need tp sell him unless ridiculous offer arrives as he could be milan’s super sub a al solskjaer.

angry birds

Questions, should we sell Diego Lopez next season??
I mean, he doesn’t want to be bench. I guess. And we can’t give him 1st gk position to him because of donnaruma


I think we should. Not only because of the financial reason, also because his lack of morale will only damage him and the club.


Not to mention milan have yet another potential young gk in gabriel. Man i really like where milan is firmly heading.
No more jokes about milan is retirements house.


bertolacci is ONLY starting because of his dead wrong price tag. who other than galliani would pay roma 20 million for this trashcan


Give bertolacci r break man. He has alot of potential. U can’t just come into Milan from a low level team n just go. He moved to a new city new environment. Look at kondogbia atleast we didn’t pay 40m. Relax chill n watch as Milan goes to Europe again enjoy it son have fun


Even dou i hope and belive that berto will still come good but time is runninng out on him cause juraj also changed club and city.. .quality never hides so lets just be patient witu the lad


is it true, milan needs to win the the Tim Cup, in order to qualify for europe?

Gigio 4 life

Yes but if we lose and come in the top 6 we’ll go to qualifiers. And berto was a top performer in serie a last season and was worth the money. His injury set him back do if he starts to shine next season remember u said he’s not good
