Watch: Maignan gets fantastic reception before Sassuolo game with Gazidis also applauded

By Oliver Fisher -

There were two heart-warming moments during the pre-match warm-ups ahead of this afternoon’s game between AC Milan and Sassuolo at San Siro.

The first came when Mike Maignan came out onto the field to begin his preparations for the game. It is his first start since undergoing surgery on his wrist and he trimmed his estimated recovery time from 10 weeks to 6 weeks, with the San Siro faithful eager to welcome him back.

Then, CEO Ivan Gazidis also got a fantastic reception as he walked on the pitchside before the game. He is back in Italy after being in New York for an update on his cancer treatment.
