Rade Krunić will be forced to miss the next few games due to an injury he sustained while on international duty.

Krunić was one of the best Milan players in the first two games of the Serie A season, showing great quality against both Sampdoria and Cagliari in the role of the central midfielder.

However, Rade will have to watch the next few games from the sidelines as he picked up an injury during the last break.

As reported by Pietro Mazzara of, Krunić suffered a muscle injury to his right calf that will require specific tests over the next week. This is a blow for both Rade and Stefano Pioli, as Milan have three very difficult matches coming up: Lazio tomorrow, Liverpool on Wednesday and Juve next Sunday.

It remains to be seen how much time Krunić will require to make a full recovery. In the meantime, Pioli will have to select from Sandro Tonali, Franck Kessié, Ismaël Bennacer and Tiémoué Bakayoko.
