Divock Origi is suffering from muscle fatigue and will miss out on tonight’s clash between AC Milan and Sampdoria. A problem for Stefano Pioli, who now will have to start Olivier Giroud for the fifth consecutive time.
The respective physical condition of Origi and Ante Rebic is a cause for concern, seeing as Giroud has been forced to work overtime at the start of this season. In the long run, this simply won’t work for the Rossoneri.
Therefore, as Origi’s injury was revealed, many fans brought up Marko Lazetic as an option for the first team. The 18-year-old has been with the Primavera side mainly lately but he featured for the first team during pre-season.
According to MilanNews, however, Pioli chose not to call up the Serbian as he has just recovered from fatigue. He carried out a personalised program at Milanello today and was left out as a precaution, but he will be available for the next game.
