La Stampa: Milan, Juve and Roma already troubled by international break injuries

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan, Juventus and Roma have all been affected by the international break on the injury front. Olivier Giroud has returned to Italy, while Federico Chiesa and Lorenzo Pellegrini have left the Italy camp. 

The schedule has been rather nice for the Serie A clubs thus far but it will get much tougher after the international break. Of course, it has already got tougher for the players, who are playing one or two games with their respective national teams.

Milan, Juventus and Roma have been on the receiving end of this. As highlighted in today’s edition of La Stampa (via MilanNews), Giroud will return to Italy due to an ankle injury, while Federico Chiesa and Lorenzo Pellegrini have withdrawn from the Italy camp.

The international break has become a burden, as the newspaper concludes, and it seems every year this discussion is brought up again. Milan will at least be hoping to have their star striker back for the derby next week, with optimism filtering.
