Sandro Tonali was one of the better Milan players in the game against Udinese tonight, which ended 1-1, but he was forced to leave at half-time. Soualiho Meite came on to replace him and did a half-decent job.
The former Brescia midfielder and his teammates tried very hard to break down Luca Gotti’s side, who defended with all of their men behind the ball. It wasn’t easy, therefore, to create chances and they were saved by a stoppage-time penalty.
According to Pietro Balzano Prota, and MilanNews, Stefano Pioli didn’t just take off Tonali as a technical choice. The youngster sustained a muscle contraction and was thus replaced as a precaution, with a tight schedule ahead.

It remains to be seen what his recovery time is and if the injury is serious, but we should know more about the situation as early as tomorrow. Hopefully, it’s like Ante Rebic’s injury vs. Roma, ie. very short recovery.
