Stefano Mazzoni gave the usual update on the injured players, discussing Lucas Biglia, Davide Calabria, Marco Storari as well as talking of Andrea Conti.
This evening the last matches of the November international break will be played and starting tomorrow, Milan will fully focus on Saturday’s Napoli match.
There are some players, however, that will miss the trip to Stadio San Paolo due to injuries and Milan doctor Mazzoni spoke to MilanTV on Tuesday for the weekly update.
“Biglia? He is improving,” he said to a reporter from the Diavolo’s official TV channel. “He underwent specific treatment and personalized training for a couple of weeks. He will partially resume full training with the squad this afternoon and he will progressively increase his work alongside his teammates in the next days. This work will tell us, depending on how the tendon responds, if he’s going to be fully fit to train with the rest of the squad or if he needs a couple days more.
“Calabria? It’s been less than 10 days since Davide suffered a sprained [ankle, resulting from] a heavy blunt force trauma in the [same] ankle that gave him some troubles last season. His improvements are significant, but it’s too soon to say when he’ll be back, he hasn’t resumed training yet.
“Conti? Andrea has started with a light jogging. In two days, it will have been two months since he had surgery. The fact he resumed training, or better this light jogging is positive [you can see the video of him jogging above]. It’s too soon to say if the prognosis is going to change for his injury, because this depends on how the knee will respond to more strain being put on it progressively.
“But after two months we can say we are pleased with how things are going, absolutely. Storari? Marco is suffering from a bad back and for this reason he won’t take part in today’s training.”
