CM: Gattuso could be without four starters as Napoli prepare for Milan encounter

By Isak Möller -

As the international break is coming to an end, Gennaro Gattuso and his Napoli will soon start preparations for the game against Milan on Sunday. Sitting in third place, they will be looking to close the gap. 

According to, however, the former Rossoneri player and manager could have to deal without four starters. The first is Victor Osimhem, who dislocated his right shoulder while on international duty with Nigeria.

David Ospina could also miss out due to a muscle problem, though his condition will be assessed once he is back from Colombia duty. Elseid Hysaj tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the important clash.

Finally, Tiemoue Bakayoko isn’t at his best after suffering a tough flu attack. The goal is to recover the Frenchman and there is hope for this, but it will be a race against time. Gattuso, in other words, certainly won’t have it easy on Sunday.
