Milan, Simon Kjaer puts Stefano Pioli in trouble
No Naples for Simon Kjaer
AC Milan has to deal with yet another injury in a period that is anything but lucky, a knockout recorded, among other things, just hours before the kickoff of the big match against Napoli: according to reports from 'La Gazzetta dello Sport', in fact, Simon Kjaer will not be available to the Parma coach, due to a muscle injury.
The Dane was in a ballot with Pierre Kalulu for the place in the center of defense left vacant, for today’s match, by the disqualified Malick Thiaw. At this point Pioli will have to make a necessity of necessity and virtue by directly deploying the Frenchman in the center of the backline in the company of Fikayo Tomori.
On the bench, however, the solutions are now very limited: in fact, the only central role that Pioli will have on the bench will be Marco Pellegrino, a 21-year-old Argentine arrived from Platense who has not yet made his official debut in a Rossoneri jersey.
The meeting between Napoli and Milan è important for both contenders, grappling with the doubts of a first part of the season made up of ups and downs: Napoli seems to be growing after the break while Milan è back from the defeats against Juventus in the league and PSG in the Champions League that have undermined several certainties in the Rossoneri house.
