While AC Milan got the job done in convincing fashion against Monza at San Siro yesterday, there was a bit of a sour note as two more injuries were added to the list.
The first came in the 20th minute when Tommaso Pobega pulled up with what appeared to be a hip problem, and then in the second half Noah Okafor scored a goal in his 10-minute cameo before being forced off with a thigh issue.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) speaks this morning about Milan’s ridiculous injury record, starting with the fact that there have been 29 different injuries this season so far. What is more concerning is that 20 of them have been muscle issues, while nine were non-muscular.
There are only eight players in the squad who have not suffered an injury so far in 2023-24, which means that the other 20 have. Moreover, there are eight players currently out with problems which reduces the depth available to Stefano Pioli in each department.
