Alessio Romagnoli hasn’t trained with the rest of the squad yet and should only be back at the end of the month.

Romagnoli picked up an injury in one of the last Matchdays of the 2019-20 season, injuring his calf back in July.

The Milan captain has not recovered yet and according to Milannews.it’s Antonio Vitiello the center back today continued doing personalized work.

Milannews.it writes that the 25-year-old (a veteran in today’s Milan reality) will only be back around at the end of September. Therefore, he’ll miss the Europa League qualifiers and the start of Serie A.

We have started again with bad injuries…we can not afford to drop a single point from the get go. .Hope Gabbia will rise to the occasion. This shows we need a CB at all cost

Gabbia can hold Bologna, Crotone and Spezia. Give Romagnoli all the time he needs for the match against Inter. We need a starter CB desperately Duarte and Gabbia can’t guarantee a clean sheet

Good point. Hope Romag will recover when we play against Inter. There is no need to loan out Gabbia.

The match against Inter is on October 18, he should be back 110 percent fit by then. The match against Spezia is on October 4th, the reports says that he would be fit by then. However Milan’s Lab is full of S in the last few years.

We need a CB urgently. Hope Our Maldini will pull his magic out again!

Interestingly Calabria saw some minutes as a CB. If Pioli deploys him there my pal Milan10 will get an aneurysm wink

i think kalulu as cb and calabria as rb would be more realistic. hell, kessie as makeshift cb and BenTo duo as double pivot would be nice

Kalulu’s is just fast, I don’t see him as a good defender, he needs time. I think in an emergency, Kessie would be a better option than Duarte.

actually, like i said after vicenza match, when defending kalulu often drifted into the middle leaving so much space on milan’s right flank for opponents to attack. he’s pretty good going forward but when defending i think he’s cb at heart. hell, i read he WAS cb at lyon jr

of course it is, feasible too.
1) kessie WAS originally a cb in his youth
2) like i said, strong dm like milan’s very own desailly and rijkaard, or other dm like yaya toure, javi martinez, mascherano and cambiasso can and do play as cb occasionally. hell, even xabi and keane used to be makeshift cb

Sorry but im not willing to make risks trying unproven stars or playing mid’s out of positions. THIS is an important season for the team. We need a real defender who can cover Roma or Kjaer whenever. I want Champions League again. sick of Inter and Roma going to UCL and watch them play with no character like us!

Young Castagna score against Vicenza with a header. He is very tall. Is he the next Gabbia?

We need a new CB quickly, because is Kjaer is injured early, then we are in trouble.

If Roma and Kjaer gets injured the season goes to the trash. Gabbia, Duarte and Mussaccio will not keep a clean sheet.

Gabbia is not bad at all and he is still growing. He was thrown on the field without even warming up but was decent. I like his tight marking he is not easily intimidated by a striker. I only know one incident he slumbered but like any other developing young lad you cant kill him for that.

dont forget his sweet koeman-esque long ball to ibra, who in turn low crossed the ball to hakan, who missed the sitter, during milan – cagliari. the talent is there

if fofana wont join milan because he wants to pull an oscar and get hefty salary from leicester to take care of his family and milenkovic is 40m rated then i dont see any realistic targets cheap but worthy of milan anymore, except maybe kumbulla, ajer (denifitely not my pick) or todibo. romag will be back in couple of weeks (btw, its pioli’s fault for playing him nonstop, even vs cagliari when 5th place had already been mathematically impossible), musa will be back in oct or early nov. by then milan will have had 5 cb. hell, even kessie can… Read more »

I think Kalulu can play CB too?
If in-house solution is possible, then better save the cash and just score more goals than the opposition team.

Hey guys
I think we need a striker more than any other positions.
you see without zltan or rebic we only have colombi.I guess it will make huge problems till end of season.
please write your opinion and hope manager squad see us
in my opinion luca jovic or federeco chiesa would be perfect singing for team.
thank you for reading my post
I wish we could see our hero captain asap at the pitch
