SM: Why Giroud, Kjaer and Bakayoko will not feature in Vicenza-Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Olivier Giroud will not be available to Stefano Pioli for the friendly against Vicenza, while Simon Kjaer and Tiemoue Bakayoko will also not play.

According to what we have learned, Giroud will skip this evening’s game against Vicenza due to muscle fatigue, but it is simply a case of being cautious and there is no concern among the coaching staff that he will miss the season opening game against Udinese in one week.

The absences of Kjaer and Bakayoko on the other hand are planned as they are part of the players’ management program. Tomorrow, Rossoneri will have another friendly against Pergolettese at Milanello and the plan is for them to feature in that.

All eyes will be on Charles De Ketelaere as he will get his first taste of action, starting on the bench and likely to enter for the last 15 minutes of the game before featuring tomorrow as well.
