Tuttosport: Milan to submit UCL squad list today – Pellegri among trio expected to miss out

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will submit their UEFA squad list today ahead of their Champions League group stage campaign, and three senior players are set to miss out.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) confirms that the Rossoneri will have to submit their list of players eligible to play in the Champions League by midnight tonight, and there is a dilemma for Stefano Pioli and the coaching staff to resolve.

Due to the current construction of the squad and the various hierarchies, there is only one spot available for a player who was not trained in an Italian academy or in the Milan academy. The paper believes this slot is destined to be taken by Pierre Kalulu, given his versatility.

What does this mean? Well, Andrea Conti should be excluded as he has been from the first two league games, but so should winger Samu Castillejo. Summer signing Pietro Pellegri is also destined to miss out, purely from a numbers point of view.

    Why are you removing Pellegri for the UCL list you are about to submit, what if Ibra and Gearoid have injure, put that Pellegri there so that him will having experience of UCL even if him did not play, how many years kaka was when Carlo Ancelotti use him, in ac Milan list in UCL, Stefano Poli do not allow what happened to Petter Hauge to happened to this guy, Petter Hauge, is doing good now in Germany.

    If You don’t know, let me tell you, many eyes are watching you badly, especially in this UCL and you are in the group of dead, Paolo Maldini do not allow Poli to do such mistake, remember you are the youngest in Italian 90, so put this man in list him may bring good luck okay.

      In group of death you rely on pellegri? You are high man. After all, You’ve never seen him play last year. He is not that good tbh. Not even close compared to Hauge. Yes hauge exclusion in UEL is a big mistake from Pioli. But pellegri exclusion in UCL is not a big deal. He will find his play time in coppa
