MN: Confusion surrounds Romagnoli and Kjaer with both away on international duty – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

There is some ongoing confusion regarding two of AC Milan’s centre-backs who have both gone away on international duty.

Alessio Romagnoli missed Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona because of what was confirmed as being a flexor injury, which most medical experts suggest should require a minimum of 10 days rest.

Despite this, MilanNews are reporting that the Rossoneri captain went to join up with the national team in Coverciano and will remain there despite the fact he is injured.

For now, the defender will remain in retreat in the sports center of the Italian national team and his condition will be further evaluated in the next few hours.

Meanwhile, the Danish national team have confirmed that defender Robert Skov has tested positive for Coronavirus, as well as a national team therapist.

Denmark has also released the list of players who will be placed in quarantine and who will not be able to take part in tomorrow’s friendly. Simon Kjaer is not among those and will be able to play against Sweden.

We often refrain from commenting on news, but it seems utterly ludicrous that the current international break has been permitted at all with Europa and the rest of the world currently experiencing a second wave of the pandemic, to which football has proven it is far from immune.

While players of Fiorentina, Genoa, Roma, Sassuolo and Inter have been banned from travelling by local ASLs after cases of COVID emerged in their squad, the other teams in Serie A have been left with no choice but to put their players in harm’s way, which is a frightening and idiotic situation.
