Leao and Bastoni Update on Their Return from Injury

Milan and Inter stars Rafael Leao and Alessandro Bastoni aren’t far off from returning from their muscular problems, but the former remains in doubt for the next Serie A round. Both talked to the press during ‘Il Gran Galà del Calcio.’ (via SportMediaset).

The Rossoneri attacker has missed the past three matches due to a calf problem.

“I’m feeling good. It’s not a severe lesion but we can’t take risks. I’m working with the doctors. I’m trying to buy time to be 100 percent to help the team. My hope is to come back soon.”

Leao was quizzed about whether he still believed Milan could the Scudetto.

“Yes, the season is long, and the team is fine. We should have done better and won in some matches. We’re in better shape now. I trust the squad because we have signed high-quality players. Christian Pulisic bagged a great goal in the last game. My teammates give their whole. I’m happy.”

Bastoni talked to Sky (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“It was hurtful to miss the last Inter and Italy games. Fortunately, I’m fine now, and I’ll be back for Saturday’s tilt versus Udinese. We have acquired awareness. There’s a group of seven or eight players that have been together for five years, which helps.”

“We know our means, but also that we risk conceding and dropping points if we lower our level of attention. We welcomed the newcomers with great enthusiasm. One of our secrets is that we’re very united off the pitch too.”
