Milan Receive Positive Updates on Injured Cornerstones

Milan fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the injury suffered by Mike Maignan against Newcastle United isn’t serious, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek subbed off simply because he was cramping up. The goalkeeper is still likely to sit a game or two. Though, the problem won’t knock him out for a long time, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.

The goalkeeper is dealing with discomfort in the flexor muscles of his left thigh. The MRI ruled out a lesion. He’s to day-to-day and will be monitored in training.

Maignan will be hard-pressed to recover for Saturday’s game against Verona, while Loftus-Cheek should be present. The former Chelsea star stated he didn’t sustain an injury but was simply fatigued through a message on his social media pages.

According to the publication, the Frenchman will likely be spared over the weekend to recover fully. The Rossoneri will take on Cagliari on Tuesday and then Lazio next Saturday. He should be back by then. They signed Marco Sportiello on a free transfer last summer because their ace isn’t new to spending time on the shelf.

Our Take on Maignan

There is no need to rush him back as they have a more reliable deputy now. They’ll probably target the clash with the Biancocelesti. He does get hurt a lot for a goalie, considering he also skipped some fixtures with a wrist injury in his maiden season.
