Just as it looked like AC Milan might have made it through the international break with no injuries, some bad news has arrived.
Sky reports that just like his compatriot Victor Osimhen of Napoli, Samuel Chukwueze has also returned injured from the international break with Nigeria.
The winger suffered a hamstring muscle problem and now faces a month out, meaning he will not be back until after the November international break as per the report.
There were already two big absentees for Milan in the big match against Juventus as both Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez are out due to disqualification.
The Rossoneri will now have to do without their most expensive summer signing for around four weeks while he recovers, and the former Villarreal man will miss a chunk of important games while he works to get back on the field, which is not ideal for Pioli’s rotation plans.
