Sky: First players arrive for tests at clinic as Milan set date for return to training

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan players have begun arriving at La Madonnina clinic for medical tests ahead of a return to training, according to a report.

Sky Italia (via MilanLive) report that at around 09:30 CEST this morning, some of the Rossoneri squad began arriving at the La Madonnina clinic for checks, which will be spread over three days with groups of 7-8 players.

On Tuesday it was Giacomo Bonaventura, Lucas Biglia and Leo Duarte who arrived at La Madonnina clinic. Other players will arrive later in the day for the ritual medical visits.

The visits also concern Stefano Pioli and his staff. The players, however, are subjected to more thorough checks that include stress tests, electrocardiograms and blood tests. No COVID-19 swabs are being taken now.

The plan is for Milan to return to training on Thursday May 7, with 12 players in the morning and the same in the afternoon across three fields in addition to the goalkeepers. In each half of the field there will be two players, in order to allow for correct distances as per protocol.

The work program drawn up by Pioli and the staff includes athletics, strength and – if possible – some exercises with the ball.
