AC Milan received some bad news today as Samuel Chukwueze returned early to Milanello from international duty with a muscle problem.
In today’s training round-up on the official website, Milan report that Chukwueze is already back at the training complex. The Nigerian suffered a left hamstring injury while away on international duty, thus ruling him out of his country’s match against Mozambique.
According to MilanNews, a month of absence is expected for the winger and he should be out at least until the November international break.
Therefore, Chukwueze is almost certain to miss the following matches: Juventus at home, PSG away (Champions League), Napoli away, Udinese home, PSG (Champions League) and Lecce away.
It is a big blow for Pioli who will have been hoping to have the former Villarreal man available during what is a demanding part of the fixture list, given the level of opponents to come and that two games a week will be common.
