Origi ruled out of tonight’s Sampdoria match due to muscle fatigue, Milan only have Giroud available up front

Divock Origi suffered another injury and is not available for the game.

Stefano Pioli said in yesterday’s press conference that the moment had come for Origi to start and lead the attack.

However, the 27-year-old Belgian, who arrived on a free transfer this summer, is not available for the match tonight.

As reported by Milannews.it, Origi did not travel with the squad to Genoa. The reason is that he suffered from fatigue in his left thigh at the end of yesterday’s training session.

This leaves Pioli with only Olivier Giroud available in attack, since Zlatan Ibrahimović (knee), Ante Rebić (back) and Marko Lazetić (fatigue) are all unavailable too. Charles De Ketelaere can also play as a striker but this is a major blow for Pioli who was counting on Origi to play from the start today.

This is the second time Origi was supposed to start but then had to forfeit the game due to an injury as he also missed Sassuolo on Matchday 4.

Probable XI (4-2-3-1) – Stefano Pioli
Mike Maignan; Davide Calabria, Simon Kjær, Pierre Kalulu, Theo Hernández; Sandro Tonali, Tommaso Pobega; Junior Messias, Charles De Ketelaere, Rafael Leão; Olivier Giroud.

What’s going on with Rebić? He barely played last season and this season is no different. Is he that prone or is he draging an injury for two seasons now? It’s not normal.


Definatley worrying especially when we have old zlatan and giroud with origi injuries problems up to now. Should have signed tammy abraham with tomori other. Season when he was available to replace zlatan long term

I now see reason with people who said we should sign Beloti…am not sure this will make any meaningful impact before season ends. I like Rebick a lot but this injury is a big concern. If right price comes, we better use it to get another younger alternative

Am tired of this injuries stuff we a need a younger and a proven striker and RW as well January




Give Marlo lazetic a run
he did well in u21 euros




Muscle fatigue!
Hes hardly played or been fit since arriving injune
What a donkey

Giroud bound to get injured with his current work load.

Our midfield is not much better off with tonali and bennacer our only decent options. When one of them gets injured we are really in trouble
