Good news coming from Milanello today as Isma and Samu are back while the returns of Zlatan and Rafa are also close.
Milan will look to win again on Thursday and potentially secure their qualification from the Europa League Group Stage, as they take on Celtic at San Siro.
Stand-in coach Daniele Bonera got some good news today as Ismaël Bennacer, who on this day celebrates his 23rd birthday, and Samu Castillejo both trained normally with the rest of the squad today.
Bennacer missed the game against Fiorentina on Sunday due to a muscle fatigue, while Samu was out because of inflammation in his knee which he has now shaken off. Both players should be available for the game against Celtic which has the kickoff time of 18:55 CET.
Meanwhile, Milannews.it reports that yesterday Ibrahimović underwent a routine check-up to assess his recovery from the muscle problem he picked up against Napoli. Both Zlatan and Leão continue with personalized work and should return to working with the group soon. There is hope that Rafael will be available for next Sunday’s Serie A game against Sampdoria at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Stefano Pioli took another swab test today and the answer in regards to him should arrive tonight or tomorrow. The Milan coach has been out with COVID-19 since before the Napoli game.
