In the January transfer window, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara brought in a few players to increase the depth of the squad. This has turned out to be crucial, although the bad luck with injuries has continued for Milan.
Fikayo Tomori has impressed and has managed to bench captain Alessio Romagnoli, while Soualiho Meite has been used several times by Stefano Pioli. Mario Mandzukic, on the other hand, has only made five appearances for Milan.
The Croatian is currently injured and could perhaps return at the beginning of next week, but nevertheless, his injury is a sign of the Rossoneri’s situation. He was brought in to be Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s deputy, but then both managed to get injured.
A tough situation for Stefano Pioli, as Corriere Dello Sport write (via MilanNews), who’s forced to play with starting XIs that haven’t played as much together. The lack of depth was especially seen in the game against Udinese earlier this week.
