Franck Kessié is already feeling better after getting injured at AFCON, but the same cannot be said for Ballo-Touré.
Kessié will soon be in Milano after his Ivory Coast got knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations, losing to Egypt in penalties in the Round of 16 of the competition.
The midfielder, who is set to leave the club as a free agent in the summer, however, did not take a penalty as he left the pitch on Wednesday after less than 30 minutes due to an injury.
According to Milannews.it, yesterday Franck underwent a CT scan and it showed no injuries of any kind. The player is already doing better and will be back at Milanello on Monday to train.
The desire is to have the player fully fit and available for the Derby della Madonnina next Saturday against Inter. This is important news for Milan, who already got Ismaël Bennacer back early following Algeria’s early exit from AFCON.
One player who will not be at the Derby is Fodé Ballo-Touré. His Senegal are still competing at AFCON but the left-back got injured in the Round of 16. As reported by Milannews.it, it’s believed that Ballo-Touré is suffering from an adductor injury and should be out for at least three weeks.
It’d also be difficult to see Fikayo Tomori return in time for the Derby as he’s still recovering from his knee surgery.
