An update on the situation of the injured Milan players.

Many were hoping that Milan would have fewer injured players following the World Cup break, but the reality is different.

The Diavolo have 9 players unavailable through physical problems and today provided an update about some of them:

Simon Kjær, Junior Messias and Divock Origi are the closest to return and they should be back available either for Wednesday’s Coppa Italia match against Torino, or in the Lecce game next Saturday. Rade Krunić is behind them and he will try to make it for the Supercoppa Italia game against Inter on January 18.

Ante Rebić will almost certainly miss the Supercoppa due to his injury, while Zlatan Ibrahimović will return to Milano next week and continue his personalized work, with the objective being to have him in the Champions League Round of 16 against Tottenham on February 14.

Fodé Ballo-Touré underwent surgery earlier this week and should be back in a month, while Alessandro Florenzi continues his recovery. As for Mike Maignan, there are still no good news. “We have no timetable, we are going with the assessments that the staff is making,” Stefano Pioli said in a press conference today (Saturday). “I can’t say today if it will be in 2, 3, 4 or 5 weeks. Mike has all of our support and is very eager, but he knows that we have to respect the times because the muscle does not respond like it should. I can’t say that we will have him by a certain date.”

Tomorrow Milan take on Roma at Stadio San Siro and once again coach Pioli will find himself without many players in his squad.
