AC Milan’s defensive crisis has received a positive update regarding Malick Thiaw. The defender suffered an injury against Borussia Dortmund at the San Siro and was expected to miss the rest of the season.
Milan’s defensive woes have only gotten worse as the season has progressed, to the point where Stefano Pioli has had no other option than to use Theo Hernandez as a central defender. Today, an update arrived regarding a return to the squad for Malick Thiaw.
MilanNews writes that the German defender underwent a scheduled checkup today, and the results have been welcomed. Recently, Thiaw was believed to need surgery to repair his left hamstring. However, this has been ruled out, given the positive updates from the checkup.
Instead, the German will continue solely with his therapy. Given he will not have surgery, the Rossoneri could expect to see him back on the pitch much sooner than expected.
The report suggests that he may return as early as February if rumours of the injury are to be believed. With that said, though, there is no timeframe as of yet. Unfortunately, there is no accurate date for his return. Regardless, though, Milan has finally been delivered some positive injury news in the defensive region.
