Milan doctor Stefano Mazzoni provided the weekly update on the injured players and it is mostly good news.

Gennaro Gattuso is getting ready for his first match as coach, as the Rossoneri play on Sunday away against Benevento, who have lost 14 out of 14 in Serie A so far.

Doctor Mazzoni spoke to MilanTV today to give the regular update on the situation of the recovering and injured players, revealing that Lucas Biglia is back available. The Argentine midfielder, who will try to get back to form with Gattuso now in charge, missed the Torino game because of a flu.

Mazzoni also said that Davide Calabria and Ignazio Abate have both resumed training after recovering from their respective injuries, while Fabio Borini, on the other hand, picked up an ankle injury and will be monitored on a daily basis to see if he can make it in the squad to play Benevento.

Meanwhile, Hakan Çalhanoğlu – another player who needs to turn things around – felt something was wrong with his calf muscle during today’s training, and in 48 hours the severity will be known.

If we need Milan best player, not best potential, to beat Benevento,

Loca Cutrone Biglia please 🙂

Yeah sentimental selection was prevailing during the era of Gortella; now we’re in new dispensation of performances orientation!


Ruth I lined up Gomez bcos of how he performed at RCB last season when montella changed our formation into 3 5 2.No sentiment


You sound funny bro imagine you talking of last season when we’re already in week 15th of a new season, what I suggest presently is just leaving everything to the management and also support our beloved milan with prayers so as to bring us back to where we belong……thanks


Calhanoglu in my view has been the most disappointing so far. He has everything to be and play like Neymar. Instead of creating goal-scoring chances by taking on defenders and opening up the defence of the opponent, he safely passes the ball around like a natural number 6. Even takes the ball back when there’s a clear opportunity to attack

Coach Seedorf

If Gattuso talked to Berlu as he said and was seriously paying attention to his words as he said considering the Milan DNA, then expect a 3412 from him not a 343 cos Berlu always emphasizes on 2 strikers. In this case, Suso will likely play as 10. If he plays 343, then I guess we’ll have Suso on the right, Cutrone or Kalinic as 9 and Silver on the left. That way, we’re still playing with 2 strikers in Silver and Cutrone/Kalinic. I guess Gattuso wants to continue from where Milan stopped so as not to disrupt the team’s… Read more »
