Some bad news has come from the checks that forwards Rafael Leao and Pietro Pellegri had on their injuries this morning, it is claimed.
Pellegri came off in the opening 15 minutes of Milan’s 2-0 win over Salernitana at the weekend as he pulled up clutching his muscle after chasing a ball over the top, calling for a substitution, while Leao came off at half-time in the game as Pioli confirmed after the match that he suffered a blow to the leg.
According to the latest from Antonio Vitiello of MilanNews, the examination on Pellegri confirmed the presence of an injury to the right adductor muscle with a new check-up scheduled in about ten days.
Meanwhile, there were hopes that Leao could play against Liverpool tomorrow and that his substitution was precautionary, but he suffered a strong muscular contusion in the back of his right thigh which actually caused a small muscle injury to the femoral biceps. According to Daniele Longo, this means he will not be back against Liverpool.
