CM: Kjaer likely to be called upon during derby despite transfer speculation

By Euan Burns -

Simon Kjaer finds himself in an unusual situation at AC Milan right now after he nearly left the club in the summer, but may also start the derby against Inter on Saturday. 

As has been reported by, Pierre Kalulu’s fitness and Fikayo Tomori’s suspension means that Stefano Pioli is stretched at the back.

Malick Thiaw will certainly start the Derby della Madonnina, but he may end up with Kjaer ahead of him.

After a series of injuries and then serious interest in his services from teams like Sampdoria, Genoa and Fiorentina, it seemed he may have limited importance at Milan going forward.

His contract also expires at the end of this season and Milan have no immediate plans to renew it, but he will be very important on Saturday evening in what is the biggest game of the season.

He may hope that Kalulu does not recover so that he can prove his worth to Pioli again.

  1. We play the high press, Kjaer won’t make it back in time to our box to help the D in transition. Especially against Inter’s pace.
