GdS: Milan’s injury crisis now farcical – 21 of 29 players have had problems this season

By Oliver Fisher -

The sheer volume of injuries that AC Milan have suffered in the first half of the season is staggering, and a report has revealed some of the numbers.

Head coach Stefano Pioli is almost used to playing with a weakened squad now given the problems that occurred last year and how it has continued into this year. As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports, when counting current and past injuries, 21 out of the 29 senior Milan players have stopped at least once since the summer.

It is a remarkable figure considering we are not even at the halfway point of the season and the only players to have avoided injury are as follows: Tatarusanu, Mirante, Gabbia, Kalulu, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Maldini and Conti. A couple of those have never been used by Pioli, while most have been used sparingly.

On Wednesday Milan will resume work in view of the big match with Napoli. The only certainty is Giroud’s recovery, while Leao hopes to at least make the bench, but a certain pessimism filters out from Milanello.

    It seems that it is time for the medical staff to change, a club full of average players except for Zlatan. The owners of the club don’t care. They want the highest results without the players you have denigrated the club and the fans of other teams are making fun of us.

    I don’t know who is the analyst of Elliot Management who thought they could just expect results without investing significantly in this team. It’s all about money and profits. Without a serious change in facilities, investment in players, and passion for the club, the owners are hurting the team.

  3. Stam says:

    I do not think its on Elliot – they are owners and have no people on grounds. They have improved the books milanello state is on Italian management.

    Elliot so far is the best ownership in the last decade, working with a plan and killing debts.

    We need to have money to do anything and 2 years ago we were 200m under.

    Milan is becoming a joke. They don’t learn from their mistakes. They just think that they are unlucky. They are not. They are doing something wrong in the way they are training. Also, ownership won’t invest. They go with the cheapest possible option with every signing. They got lucky a few times but their luck is running out. Their summer signings have been a disaster. They still rely on a 40 year old Zlatan for all of their offense. They are wasting his last few good years. Zlatan deserves better than the players Milan have surrounded him with. Playing Krunic on the left Wing and Saelemakers on the right. That is pathetic. Compare Milan’s roster to Inter, Juventus or Napoli. It’s not even close. Sad.
