Milan, Samuel Chukwueze’s injury is more serious than expected
Muscle injury for Samuel Chukwueze
The break dedicated to national team activities leaves an important negative aftermath for AC Milan: Samuel Chukwueze, who was stopped in the second half of the friendly match between his Nigeria and Saudi Arabia last Friday and was precautionarily rested for the Super Eagles’ other friendly match against Mozambique, has been diagnosed with a muscle injury that will keep him out for at least a month.
Reporting the news è 'Sky Sport', which reports on Chukwueze’s early return to Milanello, compared to the "break" of Nigeria coach, Portuguese José Peseiro. It was a bad loss for Stefano Pioli, who had been betting heavily in recent matches on the ex-Villarreal player.
Specifically, Chukwueze's injury is a hamstring injury in his left leg. The Nigerian national team staff allowed the player to return to his club 48 hours before everyone else, thus enabling him to be examined as soon as possible by the Rossoneri medical staff.
Chukwueze, class of 1999, è one of the new faces of Milan 2023-24. Before his arrival on the Rossoneri side of the Naviglio, he played for six seasons at Villarreal, first making his bones in the B team and then finding an increasingly important role in the first team, winning the Europa League in the 2020-21 season.
