Stefano Mazzoni has revealed Mateo Musacchio didn’t train today due to injury, but Nikola Kalinić is back.
Rossoneri coach Gennaro Gattuso praised the attitude of Musacchio after the match against Sampdoria, but as it turns out, the center back may have to miss out on the match against Ludogorets on Thursday after picking up an injury.
Today, Milan doctor Stefano Mazzoni spoke to MilanTV to give the usual weekly update on the situation of the injured / recovering men:
“There is good news concerning the injured players: Andrea Conti is doing well; his knee is fine. The fitness tests gave satisfying results and he is now following an individualized athletic rehabilitation program and the real objective now is to improve his condition.
“As for Marco Storari, a recent exam has confirmed that the healing of the muscular injury in his thigh is complete. He is now undergoing rehabilitation exercise and in a few days, he will be back on the pitch training with [goalkeeping] coach Alfredo Magni.
“Nikola Kalinić is doing a lot better and has resumed training with the rest of the squad. On the other hand, Mateo Musacchio did not train today as a precaution because he has a pain in his calf and in a few hours, we’ll look into it to determine the level of Musacchio’s problem.”
Gattuso tried a line-up of Donnarumma, Abate, Zapata, Romagnoli, Antonelli, Kessié, Montolivo, Locatelli, Borini, André Silva and Cutrone in today’s training ahead of Thursday’s encounter.
