GdS: Pioli awaiting updates on condition of key midfielder ahead of Fiorentina clash

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is awaiting updates on the condition of Ismael Bennacer and hopes to have him back for Sunday’s game, a report claims.

Bennacer was forced to miss the game against Lazio on Sunday night after sustaining a sprained ankle in the Coppa Italia derby defeat against Inter, and it is still not clear whether he will be back in the fold for the visit of Fiorentina this weekend.

According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) today, the Algerian’s recovery is continuing and yesterday he did an individual routine away from the rest of the squad which confirmed he is not quite ready to resume full training yet.

In today’s session at Milanello we should understand a bit more about his condition especially in view of Sunday’s match against La Viola, which is absolutely crucial in the Rossoneri’s push for the title.
