Milan Lose Deputy Winger to a Month-Long Thigh Injury

Milan are slated to recover some pieces during the break, but they won’t have Samuel Chukwueze for the upcoming string of matches. He got hurt while playing with Nigeria, as Victor Osimhen did. He has been diagnosed with a biceps femoris strain in his left thigh. He’s expected to be out for a month and thus return after the next international stoppage, Sky informs.

The former Villarreal winger will sit out the fixtures versus Juventus, Udinese, Napoli, and Lecce domestically and the double clash with PSG in the Champions League.

Chukwueze, who joined Milan in a €20M move last summer, has appeared in nine games so far, starting thrice. He’s still looking for his maiden goal or assist with the Rossoneri colors.

While Stefano Pioli will be down one man offensively, he’ll most likely welcome back multiple players in the coming days. The first reinforcement from the infirmary will be in the back. Pierre Kalulu trained almost fully on Wednesday, Tuttomercatoweb informs. He’s been out since September 15th due to a thigh lesion.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rade Krunic, who are nursing similar problems, are starting to ramp up, but they haven’t rejoined the group yet. Noah Okafor is also working on the side after picking up a minor head injury in a car crash in Switzerland. He should be fine for Sunday’s clash with Juventus.
