Simon Kjaer arrived at AC Milan in January of 2020, along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and it was just the right dose of experience that the Rossoneri needed. As a result, his absence has also been felt.
If it hadn’t been for the recent explosion of Pierre Kalulu, there is no doubt that Kjaer’s absence could have had a huge impact on the Scudetto race. In addition to adding experience, he has also found his best form at Milan.
As highlighted by Tuttosport this morning (via MilanNews), Kjaer has remained a leader of the team despite his absence. He keeps on track with his teammates via the WhatsApp group chat and he’s constantly pushing them to do well.
The No.24, in other words, is a true leader of this team and his return will be a big boost for the club. He should be back for the start of the next season and the defensive department should be of very high quality then.
