Thiago Silva a derby doubt

Milan have bad news ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Inter, as Thiago Silva and Clarence Seedorf are major injury doubts.

The Rossoneri are already without Alberto Aquilani and Gennaro Gattuso for the match tomorrow evening.

Although reports from the club medical staff suggest they are optimistic Thiago Silva will be fit in time, he is struggling with a muscular problem.

The Brazilian defender did not take part in the final training session due to a thigh twinge and was already having problems on Friday.

Meanwhile, Seedorf is suffering from flu symptoms and is also a doubt for the big game. Taye Taiwo has not been called up due to the same illness.

Antonio Cassano was along with the squad for their run-out at San Siro this afternoon and amused teammates by continually asking to join in the game between ranks.

Cassano was given the all-clear this week to start personalised training as he continues his recovery from a minor stroke caused by a congenital heart defect.
Milan squad: Abbiati, Amelia, Abate, Antonini, Bonera, Mexes, Nesta, Thiago Silva, Zambrotta, Ambrosini, Boateng, Emanuelson, Nocerino, Seedorf, Van Bommel, El Shaarawy, Ibrahimovic, Inzaghi, Pato, Robinho
