Over 150 days of recovering from injuries – Milan worried about Maignan

By Isak Möller -

Mike Maignan is struggling to recover from his calf injury and it has more or less been confirmed that the will miss the Salernitana game. It’s a cause for concern as the goalkeeper has been injured a lot at AC Milan. 

The Frenchman, prior to arriving at Milan, had only suffered one injury and it was back in the 2015/16 season. A shoulder injury kept him out for 113 days then and he missed 19 games, as compiled by Transfermarkt.

Since he arrived at Milan, though, Maignan has suffered three injuries keeping him out for a total of at least 21 games. The goalkeeper has been out for a total of 134 days to date and it will be over 150 days, provided he returns for the Roma game on January 8.

These are not exactly positive numbers and it remains to be seen what will happen. Milan are considering bringing in Marco Sportiello earlier than expected and that might be wise, but they will have to reach an agreement with Atalanta.

    1. Like most things with Italian football, Milan’s medical team is completely out of touch with the modern game. The medical staff doesn’t know how to manage players fitness. What is most alarming is these injuries are all muscle and fitness related issues. Usually those are avoidable and can be mitigated with the right oversight from a competent medical team.

  1. Milan had nothing to do with Maignan injury.
    Maignan got injured while playing for France.
    He reaggravated his injury, trying to push himself during recovery so he could make the world cup, going against Milan doctors advice

  2. Mike calf injury started with France national team and he got another injury because he keeps training against Milan doctors advise.

    We all know Milan doesn’t have the best medical team in the world since Milan lab got closed. But blaming their medical team for every injury is just silly. Look at Giroud, Leao, Tomori, or Kalulu. All of them not yet have an injury this season and they played a lot of 90+ minutes.
