From six central defenders in the squad, only one remains: Fikayo Tomori. A surreal situation, that of Milan, just over a month before the start of the January transfer window. The battery at the start of the season was as follows: Caldara, Kalulu, Kjaer, Pellegrino, Tomori and Thiaw.
Caldara should return in the new year after ankle surgery. Kalulu will be out until March due to his patellar tendon injury. We hope to recover Simon Kjaer for December, the situation is more nebulous for the Dane because his return continues to slip. In the only match played, against Napoli, Marco Pellegrino suffered a fractured ankle and his return is expected in mid-December. Now the Thiaw tile which seems no small feat.
What solutions? Against Dortmund the coach had to invent Krunic and for the next matches he will necessarily have to draw on the Primavera team. Jan-Carlo Simic was on the bench against Fiorentrina and he seems the most ready but he cannot play in the Champions League. A further fact should be highlighted: since the beginning of the year there have been 26 injuries, of which 17 are muscular. Numbers that make you think.
