GdS: Krunic out for a month – crucial games among the seven he could miss

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli was hoping for rather than expecting good news regarding Rade Krunic, and unfortunately it did not arrive.

The warning signs were there that Krunic might have suffered a serious problem when he went down during the 1-0 win over Hellas Verona at San Siro on Saturday with what looked like a muscle problem.

The report that filtered out afterwards suggested it was not just cramp or something minor, and this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) confirms that the Bosnian will be re-evaluated in ten days.

What this means is that he will almost certainly be out for at least a month due to a right hamstring injury, and at the moment TIjjani Reijnders is ahead of Yacine Adli in the battle to take his spot.

If he were to miss a month, that means Krunic would not be available for the games against Cagliari away, Lazio at home, Dortmund away, Genoa away, Juventus at home and possibly even the PSG and Napoli away games.

    1. I don’t think you can say our midfield has luxury depth mate, I mean there is no other player like Krunic in the team until Bennacer is back…So many complicated games coming up with RLC, Reijnders, Musah, Pobega & Adli as our only options. I think we needed a good DM signing this summer that never materialized.

          1. And if anything, he’s been even more insane with his comments lately. Nothing makes sense in his comments these days. Nothing.

            One could think he’s just trolling since no one can be that stupid but… Well, you decide. 😛

      1. Since November 2020, Bennacer has lost a total of 360 days to injury. We cannot rely on him when he comes back, so we need Reijnders or Musah (Adli?) to step up, otherwise we definitely do need a DM starter. Krunic has done a solid job there, but we need a payer with more craft, if we want to progress..

      2. Bar a few smart people of course😁, everyone and their grandmother on this site said we finally had depth so let’s see how that plays out. We only have depth somewhat for a 433 except for the very position Krunic plays. We originally thought we had depth for the left back in Bartesaghi but apparently he’s “not ready”

  1. Now we need Ruben Reijnders and Musah to step up. Spending majority on midfield means those 3 most have great impact.

    Pioli can also switch some games to 4 2 3 1

  2. Krunic was a warrior from his first days with milan, but he is just Krunic. AC Milan needs to give more confidence to other talents like Adli and Reijnders in that position

      1. Just speaking the truth. If I was a hater I would have him at 11, but Calabria has that locked up. Interesting to see who you think Krunic is better than? Certainly not Leao, Theo, Maignan, Giroud or Tomori. Hopefully not RLC, Reijnders, or Pulisic? Thiaw or Calabria? Personally I’d rather lose Krunic than Thiaw right now..
