AC Milan have been dealt a big boost on Tuesday morning as the club have confirmed that Fikayo Tomori has tested negative for Covid-19 and can return to training.
Milan’s preparation for the last two games has been incredibly disrupted as Pioli was forced to go with a makeshift XI. The defensive trio of Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori and Alessio Romagnoli missed both due to Covid-19 while Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie are on international duty and Simon Kjaer is out for the rest of the season.
Now, Milan have announced on their official website that Tomori has tested negative for Covid-19. The player has recovered and will return to training with his team-mates today, potentially with an eye to him taking the field for the Coppa Italia round of 16 game against Genoa at San Siro on Thursday night.
Gabbia and Kalulu did a good job holding the fort in Tomori’s absence, so now all the must be decided is who partners the Englishman presuming Romagnoli is not back.
