Ivan Strinić is out of action until further notice, as the club confirmed he has been diagnosed with an initial hypertrophy of the cardiac muscle.

The summer signing didn’t take part of any of the pre-season matches as he returned late from his World Cup vacation, having made it all the way to the final.

But it may take a while before Milan fans get to see the Croatian left-back in action, as the club confirmed that they have revealed that Strinić has a heart problem.

“Milan announces that during the six-monthly routine check-ups, scheduled in Italy for professional athletes, it was found that Strinić suffers from an initial hypertrophy of the cardiac muscle, which merits further investigation after a period of rest. For this reason, the player must temporarily suspend sporting activity until the tests have been completed,” the Rossoneri’s statement reads.

The condition of Strinić could be one of the reasons that led Milan to sign Diego Laxalt from Genoa. It is unknown when the 31-year-old will return. He signed a contract with Milan until 2021 in June.

That’s unfortunate, really bad luck. But his health comes first, so I wish him a speedy recovery.

Damn… glad this was discovered the way it was, either if he can make it back or not, what matters the most is him being able to continue living a good, long and healthy life. We’re all behind you Strinic!

Strinic was basically lucky to have played those world cup games without collapsing on the pitch.

I wish him quickest recovery.

I think he will come back soon. It’s something quite normal for a professional player to have a little bigger heart than usual people, so he will do supplementary tests, but I am sure that he will be able to come back soon. I like Strinic a lot, he was criticised for no reason, he is a very good LB and he can offer a lot in his position, especially in defence, but it is quite decent even in attack. Come back soon !

No, I am not a cardiologist, I’m a laboratory doctor and I know very well what I’m saying. Here you can read a phrase from a cardiologist ” Tuttosport – Carù (cardiologo): “Necessari almeno 3/4 mesi di riposo per Strinic, possibile ipertrofia fisiologica” “Per capire quale tipo di ipertrofia ha colpito Strinic è necessario un riposo di almeno 3-4 mesi. Un periodo più breve non avrebbero senso, a meno che nelle prossime quattro settimane il giocatore non venga sottoposto a controlli specialistici più approfonditi in grado di scongiurare la patologia più seria a livello di ipertrofia cardiaca.

i wish him, speedy recovery, am glad that he is taking care of by doctors, as for the marcato I think it wise for Milan not to splurge that kind of cash on a SMS, remember belloti, no club even ask for is service, 100mil was what Torino wanted for him, but now they cant even get half of that amount from the transferor market, what an irony !!!!

Wishing Strinic all the best and a speedy recovery. I personally had similar issue and did surgery 2yrs ago in Orlando Florida.

Now I’m fine and running half marathons without any problems. Feeling much healthier and better than before. So I’m confident Strinic will recover from this minor setback. Best wishes. Sempre!

Outrageous ! How did we sign him without a proper heart? What do they test innthese medicals, that there not allergic to sugar?

Honestly, we’ve all veing focusing on management (aka Galliani and Fassobelli) in search for the cause of our troubles, but our medical team could be just as responsible.

Well he did good in the Europa League, he was hardly given a chance in seria A, he started like 2-3 times only so i doubt the problem was in tactics. I think he had to go because of Cutrone, , there is not enough space for two young strikers in a formation with a single striker and even if Cutrone plays worse he will still be picked in front of Silva, he is a product of our youth academy so he has certain advantages.

As happy as I am it pains me to see this, in one game he scored more than he did all season in the league and why? Because he was never given the chance or consistency to work here. I was upset that he left because I know he has potential to be world class and he’s going to year that league apart. I hope we keep him next year. And btw thank goodness inter lost! Still not tk be underestimated though

Well, some of us kept saying he was treated very badly and that we are going to regret it big time.
It’s not that “he is not cut for Serie A”, it’s just that he was never given a chance. Another bad business. Waiting for Locatelli now – it will take a bit more time but it will happen as well.

I’m glad he scored 3 and I hope he’ll do better this season and rise up as a player. With that said please watch all 3 goals, the defending was awful on all 3 of them, and his reaction was not that perfect, on goals 1 and 3 he had an extra touch with ball, more than he should’ve. We needed him to be able to score in Italy and he can’t. He has no problem scoring against random EL farmers and bottom of the table teams but that means nothing to us, we need him to be able to… Read more »

Lol yep on the first two goals there was not a defender in sight for at least 10 yds.

Yea maybe he didn’t get enough chances but it’s one game. ONE game, against Rayo Vallecano….. If he does it all season I’ll be happy for him.

But truth is, we can’t have both Cutrone and Silva on the squad because one of them will have their development process crushed as they wouldn’t get enough minutes, AND André Silva has a higher value for FFP purposes.

Jesus Christ it’s this shit that pisses me off. Silva got a decent amount of playtime last season and failed to impress. Cutrone earned a spot on the team over him as second choice for this upcoming season fairly and clearly, Higuain is a massive upgrade and a player we need for this season. Silva is too expensive to be our third choice striker. He’s had a positive start at Sevilla but damn, that doesn’t mean that we should’ve kept him. I hope he does well but it wasn’t the right time for him to be at Milan. Rayo Vallecano… Read more »

You guys remember that Pazzini also scored a hat trick in his first game for us right? Why bother about Andre, he is on loan now, he will do whatever he does, he is a Sevilla player now, and probably for the future. He isn’t the first talent we have let go, and won’t be the last.
Let’s focus on our own players and that they can do as well as he said, continually, throughout the season 🙂

Yeah, and we will get the money back from him. Let’s focus on our players, Higuain who is better, and Cutrone who took his chances last season, which Silva didn’t. Talent/potential isn’t everything in football, and some players are better in other leagues. Silva will be as missed as Kalinic will be. Just gonna leave that there.

With all due respect, this is not the right mentality. Finding and growing talents is the only way to reach the top level again – especially with FFP. So, yeah, we shall care much more about potentially good players which we loose from our own squad.

For sure, my point is people losing their heads because he performed well in one game, if he keeps it up on a consistent basis then that’s another thing. Besides, scoring in La Liga is different from Serie A.
Only thing missing is people reacting with “Kalinic won the uefa super cup in his first game with atleti” as well.

A good one for Silva but it is still early in the league to judge and you need to consider the opposition he faced. That said, when you have a young talented player like Silva, it is imperative to help get the best from him, especially if he is in a new league. It is the coach’s duty to help harness this through: * Giving him regular playtime * Playing the right formation to get the best out of the player * Having one one one sessions and pep talk in building the player’s confidence and help define his role.… Read more »

We can’t really fault Gattuso for Silva’s lack of chances to play. That’s all Montella’s fault. Gattuso took over Milan in a crisis and had no choice but to trust an experienced Kalinic over a young foreign striker who has never played in Serie A. Some strikers need at least a year to adapt to Serie A and the Italian culture. Edin Dzeko is a perfect example. I wish Andre Silva the very best but I have no regrets about us loaning him out to Sevilla. La Liga is easier for strikers and he needs to regain his confidence. If… Read more »

Most of us already knew that Silva will do well as he truly didnt get enough chance in Serie A under Gatuso.

Coaches make choices, Gatuso decided and that’s it. I really love Silver but hey, he’s not our player again. He would score many goals i knew and they will buy him outright. I wish him all the best.
