Sky: Problems for Theo Hernandez, Tonali and Hauge sees Milan’s injury list increase to nine

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will travel to Verona to face Hellas with their injury situation having developed into a full emergency, a report claims.

Milan seemed to have found the right form again with what was a strong win at Roma, restoring some much-needed confidence. However, they followed it up with a frustrating 1-1 draw against Udinese.

The Rossoneri were without some of their key players, such as Hakan Calhanoglu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and this was very evident during the game. And with that result, it’s indeed very hard to tell where they stand ahead of Sunday’s clash vs. Verona.

According to Sky (via MilanNews), Milan will arrive in Verona in total emergency. In addition to the absent sextuplet of Ibrahimovic, Calhanoglu, Bennacer, Mandzukic, Rebic and Daniel Maldini, there are three more players who are not fit enough to start.

Theo Hernandez and Sandro Tonali are not ready to start, and will begin the game from the bench. The full-back and the midfielder will be replaced by Dalot and Meite respectively. Hauge is also not at his best, so he will not play either.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Dalot; Meite, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Castillejo; Leao.

    1. I also don’t get it.Why is Krunic playing when Hauge has more energy,dribbles and can score goals?…..I now see why Pioli has never kept a job at a top club for long.This is just stupid at this point…where will goals come from if you have just 2 creative players on the pitch? Why hasn’t he given primavera players game time…Gabbia has been match fit for 3 weeks now and waqs great with Kjaer earlier in the season but he still plays Romagnoli. Olzer and Roback should have made their 1st team debuts by now too. I think Pioli will have to be let go in the summer….if we don’t qualify for the UCL. The younger players that play some great football like Hauge,Diaz and Maldini have barely got game time despite the lack of creativity during the injury crisis….he prefers to play strong non technical players that cannot brak down a low bloc and I see us drawing with Hellas Today.

  1. I can only conclude that Pioli’s training methods are too aggressive.We need to fire the whole medical team and bring in more expensive,better trained physios because this is now just abnormal.Ibra,Bennacer and Calhanoglu have missed half the looks like we will have to use more primavera players.Why is Meite starting..we need more creativity….promote Olzer already.
