Official: Pioli names 19-man squad for Man Utd game – six key players out as crisis continues

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has only been able to name a 19-man squad for the first leg of the tie against Manchester United.

Milan make the trip in good spirits having emerged 2-0 victors over Hellas Verona at the weekend, which cemented their second-placed spot in the Serie A table. They will face a United side who are also confident having won the Manchester derby 2-0 at the weekend, but one that are in a bit of chaos with selection issues due to injuries themselves.

The Rossoneri go into the Europa League last-16 game battling yet another injury crisis though, and there will be no Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ante Rebic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Mario Mandzukic available for the game.

Below are the 19 players that Pioli has called up for the trip to England, as confirmed by the club’s official website.

Goalkeepers: A. Donnarumma, G. Donnarumma, Tătărușanu.

Defenders: Calabria, Dalot, Gabbia, Kalulu, Kjær, Romagnoli, Tomori.

Midfielders: Castillejo, Díaz, Kessie, Krunić, Meïte, Saelemaekers, Tonali.

Forwards: Leão, Tonin.

    Why tonin? Why not robak? Why not maldini?
    Mediocre coach – mediocre milan. I fear of embarrasement with man united mach

    If I was Pioli, would go with the following formation and players

    LeAO
    Calabria Diaz Saelemaekers

    Tonali Kessie
    Meite

    Tomori Romagnoli Kjaer

    Donna

    Leao is very good but inconsistent

    Pioli can add Tonin but couldn’t include Hauge then. Milan will loose home and away. Even plus Ibra. Forza Milan

    Milan treba postavit mlade snage za utakmicu pa nek se kale !! Malo je vjerojatno da če proč dalje preko Manchestera u dva ogleda !! Prvenstvo je prioritet kao i oporavak svih ozljeda u klubu !! Napolija treba dobit za vikend i sačuvat barem drugu poziciju na tablici !!!
