CM: Here is when Messias should return to fitness for Milan

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan should be able to call upon Brazilian forward Junior Messias when they face Lecce next weekend, a report claims. 

As has been reported by, Stefano Pioli will have another option added to his attack in the near future with Messias set to return.

He has been out injured since before the World Cup, spending around two months on the treatment table. That has meant that, along with Alexis Saelemaekers injury, Pioli has had very limited options on the right wing.

Milan will be travelling to Salento to take on Lecce on Saturday, January 14 and it is expected that Messias will be in the matchday squad for that game at the Stadio Via del Mare.

The clash against AS Roma on Sunday night has come too soon for him though, meaning Saelemaekers is expected to start on the right against the Giallorossi in the biggest game of the weekend.
