Tuttosport: Over 10 first team players to be missing for Milan in friendly vs. Novara

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will begin their preseason campaign with a friendly against Novara at Milanello on Wednesday afternoon.

It marks the first of three quickfire friendlies for the Rossoneri, as two more friendlies have been confirmed by the club. The first is on Saturday 5 September at 20:45 CET as Milan will take on Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani’s Monza at San Siro.

The second is the following Wednesday 9 September, as the Rossoneri will face Vicenza in their third preseason test at 17:00 CET.

As Tuttosport reports (via MilanNews), there will be a number of key players unavailable for today’s game against Novara. This is because there are a number of players who are away with their respective national teams, such as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Simon Kjaer, Ante Rebic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Matteo Gabbia, Tommaso Pobega, Alexis Saelemakers, Lorenzo Colombo and Daniel Maldini.

In addition to that, centre-back duo Alessio Romagnoli and Mateo Musacchio are both recovering from injury.
