Lucas Biglia will be checked in 15 days and is going to miss the next two months of action, according to reports.
Biglia left San Siro on crutches after the Rossoneri’s game against Genoa on Wednesday, and today (Friday) the player underwent more tests and the early assessments have been confirmed.
According to Sky and Milannews.it, the scans showed a lesion to the muscle in his right calf. The 32-year-old Argentine will be undergoing more tests in 15 days.
Sky expects Lucas to miss the next 6-8 weeks due to this injury and this is a tough blow as Biglia has been instrumental in the system of Gennaro Gattuso; he’s practically the only natural regista in the squad of Rino and when he’s fit he’s been an obvious starter for the Rossoneri.
Milan will have to go on like this until they have a chance to improve the squad in January. Until then, it is expected that Tiémoué Bakayoko, Andrea Bertolacci and Jose Mauri will try to replace Biglia. Riccardo Montolivo, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, will continue to be frozen out as Gattuso does not see the former 33-year-old captain as a player that can play in his team.
In other injury news, Davide Calabria is suffering from a sprained ankle and he will miss the game against Udinese away from home on Sunday and most likely the one against Real Betis in Spain. The hope is to have the fullback available again against Juventus at Stadio San Siro on November 11.
Giacomo Bonaventura today performed a personalized training session, while it was confirmed last week that Mattia Caldara will also miss the next few months due to an injury.
