Gennaro Gattuso is set to resume his Milan playing career this week as reports indicate he is in line for a start against Paris Saint-Germain.
Gattuso has been training with his teammates since mid-November but has not played since the opening round of League fixtures at the start of September.
Coming off after just 19 minutes against Lazio with blurred vision, the World Cup-winning midfielder has since had to undergo treatment for a rare eye condition.
However, he has been given the all-clear to make a return to action and confirmed to reporters that he will appear on Wednesday. The Rossoneri face Carlo Ancelotti’s new team PSG as part of both clubs’ mid-season training retreats in Dubai.
“I will play against PSG, but it won’t be for a long time. I have to take it slowly in the beginning, step by step.”
Meanwhile, Massimiliano Allegri commented that he will likely try to give the No 8 at least 45 minutes of game-time.
