MN: Lazetic a late call-up for Torino game as Milan suffer attacking emergency

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a bit of an emergency to contend with in attack again tonight which means Marko Lazetic has been called-up, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Lazetic was called up at the last minute for the trip to face Torino. The Rossoneri are battling with a number of injury problems because Ismael Bennacer, Ante Rebic and Samu Castillejo are out due to muscle fatigue, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a knee overload.

That means the decision to start Olivier Giroud up front is pretty much locked in but there are now no other alternatives in the centre-forward role apart from the former Red Star youngster, who took the field yesterday for the Primavera against Cagliari.

Indeed, the report adds that with Ibra and Rebic out tonight for the game against the Granata, Lazetic will be the first alternative to Giroud and could come off the bench.

  1. Bennacer ???, Rebic???, Ibra??? wtf……..muscle fatique/knee from training, they were fine a day ago. Everyday a different and new story on who is starting and the health of the team. Other teams have problems as well but not to the degree of A.C.

  2. Soccer is a team sport way more so than other sports, every player has to be spot on for the team to function at its highest level, there is no continuity as to who is , when , and where they are playing. Scudetto bye bye. Next year give me a squad with average players that play weekend and week out without any disruption or drama.

  3. Milan needs to reevaluate Pioli and his team and their training methods. How, after a whole week off, you missing players because of muscle fatigue. It’s not like they played on Wednesday. This has nothing to do with Milan Lab, this is Pioli and his fitness coaches. All these muscle & ligament injuries over the last 3 years are because of the training methods of the coach

  4. Trainer, in every sport, MUST be educated with “Metodology of training”, and MOST IMPORTANT: PERIODIZATION!!! It is not only training, training… First issue for injury is overtrained players. You learn that in second year in faculty for sport.
