Sky: Chukwueze out until after the November international break

By Oliver Fisher -

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.

  1. Oh! Wow, what a start to his career at Milan. Hope he has a speedy recovery. So now Pioli will he play Romero or Okafor that would be the worth seeing because Pulisic won’t be able to play that many games.

  2. What an unfortunate start he has had to Milan career.
    This run of games is when we need him.
    Ok we have romero but is he ready to take on Juve?
    I’m sure Pioli had planned to give Pulisic some time to recover before psg and napoli

  3. Not a good start for him at all. Hope he’s back soon cause we need all our guns firing. Now I hope Romero can step up and give Pioli a headache.

      1. Because of misfiring and force dribbling Chuk? Until now and with chances he got he hasn’t proven anything so he’ll only be missed as a number from the bench.

  4. Should never have bought him in the 1st place, waste of money, no end product. Should have bought Orsolini or Berardi.

    Oh well too late now, got better soon so we can see some more pointless dribbling and running around like a headless chicken 🐔

    At least now Romero might get a chance

  5. I am commenting on 2 issues – the rough tackles of Saudi players and the need of playing weaker opponents. Saudi Football Authorities should caution their players. That was a friendly game in a Portuguese Stadium, not a game of death in a cage fight. The Saudi players wounded some of our players to ensure that they did not loose that match. Eventually they succeeded in getting an equalizer after 100 minutes of play with the last free-kick and last shot. After losing 5 matches in a row, why must the Saudi team play another big team as strong as the Super Eagles? They should have opted for a smaller team in order to break the jinx of defeats that followed their beating of Argentina and Leo Messi. Just imagine Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen and co going out of action for several weeks, all from one friendly match. We must always remind ourselves that we have big players now in the Nigerian National team. Our NFF and the Coach must make sure that subsequent friendly matches are backed up with VAR.

    In my second comment I ask – Do we really need to play weaker National team? Obviously, yes! Brazilian National team do NOT play only strong teams. They also play with small nations with weak National Teams. Our Super Eagles should continue their friendly matches with this kind of game combination – playing weak team and a strong team during FIFA break. Weak teams provide the opportunity for players to score goals, win matches and strengthen their confidence. While the matches with strong National Team gives a clue on how to handle tough opponents in competition. Both Grade A and lower rated matches are essential in building a stronger Super Eagles that can win the CAF Nation’s Cup and possibly the World Cup.

  6. Now it’s an especially good thing for Milan that the USMNT was able to take Pulisic off after 45′ up 4-0 against Ghana. That gives him some much needed rest before this string of upcoming matches for Milan.
