The return of Noah Okafor is getting closer and AC Milan fans might see him back in action as early as this weekend’s game against Roma, according to a report.
It was inside the final 20 minutes of the 3-0 win over Monza last month that Okafor sustained the injury that has kept him out for a few weeks now, and it came in rather bizarre circumstances.
Milan put the game to bed with a beautiful team move as he scored from Giroud’s flick, but in his celebration the Swiss decided to leap high into the air and as he landed he dropped to one knee, leading many to believe he did the damage then.
Not long after, he came off clutching the back of his thigh and it was diagnosed after an MRI scan that he had suffered a problem with his flexor semimembranosus muscle.
He has been on the path to recovery ever since, and MilanNews report that today he did some individual work on the field.
The report adds that the former Red Bull Salzburg man has the aim to return to training with the rest of the squad after the Atalanta game on Wednesday, to then be available for Milan-Roma on Sunday evening at San Siro.
