AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to welcome four key players back for the game against Roma on Thursday night, a report claims.
MilanNews reports that Davide Calabria has fully recovered and will available for the first match of 2022 that the Rossoneri will play against the Giallorossi, while Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic are also expected to return to training with the rest of the squad today and should therefore make the game too.
The return of the duo will give Pioli a variety of solutions that he did not have in the last part of 2021 when both were out with muscle problems, something that forced him to come up with creative solutions.
There is also Zlatan Ibrahimovic who should be back for the Roma game too given he has disposed of the knee discomfort that forced him to miss the game against Empoli before the Christmas break. The hope is that his condition is back at 100% after some time off, as is Olivier Giroud’s.
