Official: Pioli names 20-man squad for Atletico game – Kjaer out again but Florenzi returns

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has named a 20-man squad for tonight’s Champions League group stage game against Atletico Madrid.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Rade Krunic are out of the game with respective Achilles and muscle issues. Simon Kjaer and Alessandro Florenzi trained with the squad on Monday but the former has not been called up for this game.

Davide Calabria returned to the fold during the win in La Spezia at the weekend having recovered from a muscle problem while striker Olivier Giroud started that game but came off after 45 minutes. Junior Messias is still not match fit and has been left out of the squad to face the LaLiga champions.

Below are the players that Pioli has summoned, with no real surprises in terms of exclusions or inclusions apart from Kjaer.

Goalkeepers: Jungdal, Maignan, Tătărușanu.

Defenders: Ballo-Touré, Calabria, Florenzi, Gabbia, Hernández, Kalulu, Romagnoli, Tomori.

Midfielders: Bennacer, Díaz, Kessie, Saelemaekers, Tonali.

Forwards: Giroud, Leão, Maldini, Rebić.

    what is happening with messias? is our medical team really that kind of joke, they need half of the season to get him ready? 6 game weeks already gone and we don’t know anything about his condicion, did he even gone through preseason preparation with crotone?

  2. Sulecoach says:

    Yes offcause some seriours is happening, either he’s going to follow Hauge’s exile or pioli is hiding something from the player.

    1. Vero Rossonero says:

      yes, HAUGE. If we only had HAUGE we’d be in first place right now. He’d have 10 goals and 5 assists already and would be player-coach. Maldini Massara and ELIOT have no clue. #Pioliout.
