GdS: Key Milan forward returns from injury in time for Juventus game

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will have winger Suso at his disposal for Sunday’s trip to face rivals Juventus, a report claims.

The Spaniard was forced to miss last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Lazio having picked up an injury in training the day before, with Samu Castillejo taking his spot.

However Castillejo was then forced to come off in the first half of the game, leaving the field in tears with a thigh muscle problem, and he is expected to miss at least a month.

That left Pioli with a bit of a problem as a shortage of players who can play on the right had developed, but La Gazzetta dello Sport (via provides a positive update in their Wednesday edition.

The paper claims that Suso trained with the rest of his Rossoneri team-mates on Tuesday at Milanello, and that the muscular problem that forced him to miss the match against Lazio therefore seems to be solved.

Therefore, the 25-year-old should be available to Pioli on Sunday for the match in Turin against Juventus.
