Reports: Milan face potential left-back crisis as Ballo-Toure didn’t train today

By Isak Möller -

Theo Hernandez was sent off against Roma this past weekend and will thus miss AC Milan’s clash against Inter on Sunday evening. And this afternoon, it was reported that his replacement missed out on the training session today. 

Fode Ballo-Toure, who has been the second-choice left-back this season, didn’t take part in the Rossoneri training session this afternoon. This was reported by MilanNews and Daniele Longo, but the reason is yet to be stated.

Most likely, the Senegalese international is struggling with an injury (he also missed the Torino clash last week) and that is indeed worrying for Milan. They need him fit for fight on Sunday, otherwise a makeshift solution will be needed.

Davide Calabria seems to be the only good option to replace the two as Pierre Kalulu was very poor in that position against Porto. Hopefully, Ballo-Toure will be back in training very soon, given the importance of the Milan derby.

      Bennecer can play as left back against inter. I trust him to do a good job there. He as the speed,ball control and skill to beat his man on the counter.

    He should use Conti in that position instead.
