Genoa boss Shevchenko could be missing seven players when former club Milan visit

By Oliver Fisher -

Genoa boss Andriy Shevchenko will have a bit of an injury crisis to try and battle when they face his former side Milan on Wednesday, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have lost back to back games in Serie A having been beaten 4-3 away against Fiorentina last weekend and then 3-1 by Sassuolo at San Siro, so they will be looking for a response and a bounce-back performance against the Rossoblu and against one of their favourite sons in Shevchenko.

According to the latest from (via MilanNews), there are in fact five players who will surely miss the match against the Rossoneri. They are centre-back Nikola Maksimovic, full-back Domenico Criscito, midfielder Francesco Cassata, winger Mohamed Fares and striker Felipe Caicedo.

The problems may not stop there though as forward Yayah Kallon and striker Mattia Destro are both doubts, with both to be evaluated after their respective muscle problems. Destro of course is another former Milan striker and one who has developed a knack for scoring against his old side.
