Milan end defensive crisis

Alessio Romagnoli has recovered from an injury and he will be available against Napoli while Mateo Musacchio has been training with the rest of the team, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Stefano Pioli had found himself with lack of defensive options at the beginning of the season with Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer who were the only fit defenders.

Leo Duarte and Matteo Gabbia had caught Covid and Musacchio was out of action for an ankle injury.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, each one of them, apart from Musacchio, are now fit to play.

The former Villareal defender, however, has been training with the rest of the team over the last few days and will be included in the squad list soon.

Romagnoli was forced out Milan’s home clash against Verona before the break but is reported to have recovered while on international duty.

He will be eligible to play against Napoli with Pioli who has only one doubt about the Rossoneri’s line-up at the San Paolo.

Meanwhile, Milan trained at Milanello today.

“Welcomed to Milanello on a beautifully sunny day, the team, still in reduced ranks because of national team engagements, carried out morning training. The training began as per usual with a warmup in the gym. Training then focused on strength, with the help of equipment,” the Rossoneri reported on their official website.

“The group then took to the field for some athletic exercises on speed, followed by work on ball retention and possession. The mini-games, which at first began as themed matches and then changed into a free-flowing, multi-touch game, concluded today's training. A training session has been scheduled to take place tomorrow afternoon, Thursday 19 November.”
