Another huge blow for Milan as Mateo Musacchio is out for the next 2 months.
The injury problems keep piling up for Milan: after losing Mattia Caldara and Lucas Biglia for several months, yesterday the Rossoneri also saw Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Mateo Musacchio pick up injuries.
The Argentine center back had a collision with Franck Kessié during the match against Real Betis and had to be replaced with a suspected concussion. As it turns out, however, he suffered a knee injury.
“Milan announces that, following a game clash last night during Real Betis-Milan, Musacchio reported a trauma to his right knee that involved a lesion of the posterior cruciate ligament, an injury that will require 6 to 8 weeks conservative treatment. The medical examinations relevant to the concurrent head trauma have been completed with negative results,” a statement on the official site reads.
This means that Gennaro Gattuso will have to do with only Alessio Romagnoli, Cristian Zapata and Stefan Simić (and Ricardo Rodriguez) as his center backs, at least until the January mercato.
