MN: Dest excluded from squad to face Torino but Ibrahimovic returns

By Oliver Fisher -

An official squad has been named for tonight’s game between AC Milan and Torino at San Siro, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic among the names.

According to MilanNews, the team have just arrived at the hotel near the San Siro stadium where they will stay during the build-up for the game against Ivan Juric’s side which kicks off at 20:45 CET tonight.

The main headlines from the squad named are that Sergino Dest has not been called up, and not because he is injured either but rather due to technical choice. Ibrahimovic however is back after eight months out due to knee surgery.

Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori and Ismael Bennacer are all injured, as well as long-term absentee Alessandro Florenzi.

Goalkeepers Tatarusanu, Mirante, Vasquez.

Defenders: Kalulu, Thiaw, Calabria, Ballo-Tourè, Kjaer, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez.

Midfielders: Pobega, Adli, Vranckx, Saelemaekers, Messias, Tonali, De Ketelaere, Krunic, Brahim Diaz, Bakayoko.

Forwards: Giroud, Rebic, Ibrahimovic, Origi, Leao.

  1. Mister has to shake something up and try new stuff rather than relying on last years luck and faithfuls like Krunic and Diaz.

    Kalulu – Kjaer – Thiaw – Theo
    Vrankx – Tonali
    Origi – Rebic – Leao

    But im no coach.

    1. I like it!

      Though id prefer to see 433
      Its a closer system to the 4231 we have been used to.
      Its what we need to control midfield

      This new 352 is a very different system and really it just adds another CB.
      433 is what suits our squad the most

  2. It has to be Olivier Giroud up front alongside Rafeol leao ..I do not know why Olivier is getting unfair criticism..He needs service to him .Inside the 18 yard there is no one better than him ..never write this man off ..He is far from finished as he proved last season and indeed at the World Cup .It’s no good people talking about pace ,Olivier has the first few yards in his head ..He is technically very good on the ball ,extremely strong in the air ,and he knows exactly where to be at the right moment ,this is not down to luck but skill ..ok we are going through a wobble at the moment ,but just look at Liverpool in the premiership at the moment ,,they will bounce back just as we will …We can still finish in the top four this season ,and I believe we will beat Tottenham in the champions leauge .So all is not lost …so please fans stay optimistic and hopeful..We are AC MILAN .
