There is good and bad news from the treatment room for head coach Stefano Pioli as he looks to juggle a very demanding fixture list.
According to a report on MilanNews, Milan will soon officially confirm Alessandro Florenzi’s recovery time and the feelings are not good at all. The demonstration of affection during the derby during which Rafael Leao showed the No.25 shirt after his goal is proof that he faces a long time out.
On a more positive not, Rade Krunic on the other hand should be back training with the rest of the squad after his left rectus femoris strain, while Ante Rebic is counting down the days to get rid of his back problem.
Having those two back would be crucial as it would allow one (or both) of Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer to potentially get some rest while Aster Vranckx and Tommaso Pobega adapt, while Rafael Leao will also need some rest at some point too.
