MN: Milan to face Spezia, Juventus and Inter in crisis again – midfield and defence stretched

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will face their next three opponents with a selection crisis again, and two of them involve clashes against their biggest rivals.

Milan’s 2022 started very well in terms of results with wins against Roma and Venezia followed up by a cup win over Genoa after extra-time, but the health of the squad is anything but ideal at the moment due to a combination of injuries, Covid and international commitments.

MilanNews reports how the Rossoneri will face Spezia (January 17), Juventus (January 23) and Inter (February 6) with only Florenzi, Kalulu, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez and the returning Calabria fit in defence, then just Bakayoko and Krunic available for the midfield against Spezia because Tonali is suspended.

Kjaer and Tomori are injured, Romagnoli has Covid-19 and should be back against Juventus, but Ballo-Toure, Kessie and Bennacer are at the African Cup of Nations. The matches against Juventus and Inter are obviously more worrying, and there is an extra concern: Theo Hernandez is one yellow away from suspension.

    Seedorf is in italy now, no? Seriously we may now be out of scudetto.

  2. Rr says:

    Yes we are! But that was clear, after summer sinings, balo, baka 6,1mio florenzi 4,5 mio pellegri 2,9 mio are of huge benefit 😂

  3. Labeed says:

    Florenzi is one of the most successful signings this past summer if not the best. In my opinion, he is more defensively sound than Theo and Calabria. It’s unfortunate that he is in his 30s. Plus he has the grinta that youngsters miss.
