Another key injury for Milan: Hakan Çalhanoğlu is out of the next game.
Milan are running out of starters: after missing 7 players in the 3-1 defeat against Juventus last night – the first defeat of the Rossoneri in Serie A since March 8, the Rossoneri have now lost another player.
As reported by Sky Italia, Milannews.it and others, at the end of Milan-Juventus at Stadio San Siro on Wednesday, Çalhanoğlu felt serve pain in his left ankle.
As of today, the ankle of the Turkish is still swollen and it is now certain that he will miss the match against Torino which takes place at San Siro on Saturday evening at 20:45 CET. The player will undergo further checks in the coming days to understand the severity of his injury.
Stefano Pioli is already without Rade Krunić and Ante Rebić (COVID-19) and without the injured Matteo Gabbia, Ismaël Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers and Zlatan Ibrahimović. Finding solutions on the pitch also without Hakan, who was chosen as the Lega Serie A Player of the Month for December, is another huge challenge for the coach who will look to retain the first place in the standings.
Sandro Tonali will return from suspension against Torino, while Zlatan may be able to make it to the bench. Çalhanoğlu’s injury is yet another blow for Milan.
