Krunic Injury Confirmed, Star Milan Duo Returning Soon

Rade Krunic will miss multiple matches due to a thigh strain, while Theo Hernandez is expected to return quickly after being a late scratch for Saturday’s clash with Hellas Verona, and Mike Maignan is on his way to a speedy recovery too. The two trained fully on Monday, Sky informs.

Davide Calabria practiced on the pitch but on his own. Both fullbacks sat out the bout with the Scaligeri due to small thigh knocks that caused contractures.

Stefano Pioli had to turn to an unusual scheme, 3-4-3, because they ran out of healthy bodies on the defensive flanks. Yunus Musah covered the whole right one on Saturday. Hernandez is a safe bet to be available, allowing the coach to revert to 4-3-3, while the call on Maignan will be late.

Krunic has been diagnosed with a right biceps femoris lesion and will be re-evaluated in ten days. The gaffer previously mentioned Tijjani Reijnders and Yacine Adli as the alternatives at his position.

Our Take on Hernandez, Maignan, and Krunic

The tongue turns to the aching tooth, as the deputy fullback and the maestro roles were the sore spots of their summer window. They made do against Verona, but a serious injury to a starter would put them in a bind. They shouldn’t mess about and deploy Reijnders there. There’s a chance it could be the standard makeup the rest of the way.
