Agent: ‘Coppa final Niang’s target’

The agent of injured Milan forward M’Baye Niang says ‘the Coppa Italia final is his objective’ and ‘he’s progressing well’.

The 21-year-old had been in excellent form for the Rossoneri before he suffered an ankle injury that risked sidelining him for the rest of the season.

However, agent Moussa Ndiaye has outlined that Niang is hoping to be back in time for the Coppa Italia clash with Juventus on May 21.

“He’s progressing well, M’Baye is following a rehabilitative protocol and for the moment it’s going well,” Ndiaye said to Milan News.

“In reality it’s difficult for him to not be with his teammates, he would like to help the group reach the objectives of the season.

“Obviously the Coppa Italia final is one of the objectives to try and be there for. Niang would be an extra weapon available to the Coach to win this match.”
