The French goalkeeper will be forced to a period of stop

Twenty-four hours after the calf problem he suffered in the Nations League match between France and Austria, apprehension rises in the Milan household over Mike Maignan’s condition. The French goalkeeper, in fact, underwent examinations on Friday that, according to reports by ‘Le Parisien’ – which in turn cites sources close to the French national team’s medical staff – confirmed the muscle problem, estimating recovery time at two to three weeks.

The hyper-compressed schedule this early in the season will force AC Milan to rely on Ciprian Tatarusanu for some matches, with veteran Antonio Mirante having to play in the Champions League instead given the absence of the Romanian defender in the list handed to Uefa for the group stage of the Cup. A situation that already occurred last season, when the transalpine goalkeeper suffered a scaphoid fracture that forced him to a much longer stop than expected this time (he was out for two months then).
