Later this month, AC Milan will take on the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and PSV Eindhoven to prepare for the second half of the season. And Stefano Pioli will only be without three of his starters for these games.
Training resumed at Milanello yesterday and the second session took place in the rain earlier today. Davide Calabria, Mike Maignan and Alexis Saelemaekers are still working individually but are expected to be available for the games.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will travel with the team to Dubai but he isn’t expected to get any playing time. Meanwhile, Simon Kjaer and Charles De Ketelaere will also take part as they have been knocked out of the World Cup already in the group stages.
The three starters that will be missing are Theo Hernandez, Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud. Fode Ballo-Toure and Sergino Dest are also still at the World Cup but they aren’t considered as starters for the Rossoneri.
