MN: Milan left holding their breath as Kjaer leaves early with injury – his condition

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is left waiting with baited breath as Simon Kjaer left Mondays 4-1 win over Lecce early with an injury.

There was a spot of panic moments after the goal when Kjaer collapsed in a heap after a late challenge, though the Danish international managed to continue for a few minutes.

Kjaer looked to have fought off the previous injury he sustained, but five minutes before the break he hobbled off, replaced by Matteo Gabbia.

It of course arises more panic for Milan, with Leo Duarte and Mateo Musacchio both out injured, though the Brazilian is expected back in time for the Roma game.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Kjaer has suffered a trauma to his right knee and will be evaluated in the next few hours, with tests likely to follow.
