Left calf discomfort for Rossoneri goalkeeper

As if the injuries of Calabria, Theo Hernandez and Tonali (who came off badly in the last league match against Napoli), which had been added to the pre-existing ones of Origi and Rebic, were not enough, Stefano Pioli has to deal with bad news from Paris.

Engaged in the Nations League match between his France and Austria in fact, Mike Maignan did not return to the field after halftime because he was the victim of a left calf problem. Replaced by Alphonse Areola, the number one of the Italian champions remains waiting to know the outcome of the tests to which he will presumably undergo in the coming hours.

On social media, meanwhile, anger and concern mount among Rossoneri fans. On the one hand, they curse the commitments of the National Teams, which often return injured players to the clubs, and on the other hand, anxiety about the possible long absence of the French extreme defender. In view of the upcoming, probing commitments of the meneghina team, – reference is made above all to the double confrontation with Chelsea – there is also some skepticism about Antonio Mirante, who should take the Frenchman’s place between the posts given the non-inclusion, in the club competition list, of Ciprian Tatarusanu.
