Milan Lose Maignan Again Because of New Calf Injury

Just as he was on the verge of coming back, Mike Maignan suffered a new calf injury that will sideline him for a few more matches. Milan announced that he would be re-evaluated in ten days, but his odds of playing before the World Cup break are slim. And, if the next round of tests doesn’t go well, the goalkeeper might not go to Qatar either, Corriere della Sera informs.

The Rossoneri quickly corrected a statement saying he picked up a problem on the right leg, confirming that the issue was on the same one he had been nursing so far. But it’s not a relapse because he sustained a lesion to the soleus muscle this time. The previous one was on the gastrocnemius, which makes the situation a little less severe.

Maignan suffered the first injury while starring for France in the Nations League game versus Austria on September 22nd. The timetable for him to return shouldn’t be much shorter. Therefore, he might run out of time in Serie A and Champions League. Milan will face Monza, Dinamo Zagreb, Torino, RB Salzburg, Spezia, Cremonese, and Fiorentina before the break. Ciprian Tatarusanu will continue to man the sticks.

Despite the unexpected blow, the Rossoneri will be a little healthier heading into the derby with the Brianzoli. As per Sky, Simon Kjaer has recovered from a thigh strain. He resumed training with the group Thursday. He will available, but he might not start eyeing the ensuing UCL fixture, which Fikayo Tomori will miss due to a suspension. Charles De Ketelaere is also likely to be back after missing two games with muscle fatigue.
