Hakan Çalhanoğlu has recovered from the Coronavirus and will be back soon.
Çalhanoğlu tested positive on January 17, one day before the match against Cagliari, but today (Friday) the club confirmed that the Turkish has healed from COVID:
“Milan announces that Çalhanoğlu has tested negative to the COVID-19 swab test. In the coming hours, the player will undergo medical screening required to resume football activities,” a statement on the official website reads.
The absence of Çalhanoğlu was heavily felt, especially in the two defeats against Atalanta in Serie A and Inter in the Coppa Italia. Hakan is the glue that ties the midfield and the attack of Milan together and they found it very difficult to create goal-scoring chances in the matches that he missed.
Hakan is not on the squad list posted by Milan for the match against Bologna tomorrow (15:00 CET), but based on the result of a test he’ll soon take, he could be added and make it to the bench.
