GdS: Milan taking cautious approach with Kjaer despite positive test result

By Oliver Fisher -

The worst case scenario has been avoided for Simon Kjaer but he is expected to miss a week of action, according to a report.

There was a real blow in the 35th minute of Sunday night’s game against Juve as Kjaer hobbled and pulled up, requesting to come off, and the 23-year-old was replaced by Pierre Kalulu as Milan’s defence all of a sudden had a makeshift look about it.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that the magnetic resonance scan that Simon Kjaer underwent yesterday after the muscle injury suffered during Sunday’s match against Juventus fortunately ruled out injuries to the flexors and therefore a longer time out.

However, the paper does add that the Dane will almost certainly miss Milan’s next two league matches against Venezia (tomorrow) and Spezia (Saturday), therefore potentially returning for the game against Atletico Madrid at San Siro next Wednesday.
