CM: Rebic, Origi and Ibrahimovic – the latest on the condition of Milan’s attack

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the areas where Stefano Pioli has not been able to call on much consistency in terms of selection is the attacking department, with depth severely impacted by injuries.

Calciomercato.com write how the game against Inter in the Supercoppa Italiana on Wednesday has huge ramifications for how the season is viewed. It is a game that comes at a delicate moment, but if the Rossoneri win then it could give a big boost for the rest of the season.

Pioli will be able to count on Ante Rebic, who has almost fully recovered from the injury to his left thigh. The Croatian missed the matches against Salernitana, Roma and Lecce, but he trained with the group yesterday and should be called up.

He should start from the bench against the Nerazzurri, as Divock Origi should too after he made his return to action against Lecce at the weekend. Zlatan Ibrahimovic did not leave for Riyadh with the team, and should only join his team-mates on match day.

The Swede’s recovery is uncertain too, and now it seems it will be difficult to get him on the pitch in mid-February, for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Tottenham, so a further postponement will be needed.

  1. All 3 forwards mentioned have to go.. they cannot perform regularly and reliably. Bakayoko, Ballo-Toure, Mirante, Tatasaranu, Dest,Messias and one of Pobega or Vranckx have to go too. That’s why we are weaker this year , these 11 players don’t contribute. We lost Kessie & Romagnoli who were reliable and efficient. I hope Milan regenerate the team this summer with at least 7 signings.

    1. If you leave them all, we will not have any more player in squad . Red Bird is poor like Greece. And Pioli should be more brave to put primavera or youngsters in rotation .
