Maxi Lopez ready for Milan debut

Maxi Lopez is in the Milan squad for tomorrow’s game with Cagliari, but Thiago Silva is still unavailable.

The striker completed his loan move from Catania on Friday evening and is already thrown into the deep end.

The Argentine only had his first training session with his new Rossoneri teammates this afternoon and is expected to be on the bench at San Siro on Sunday evening.

Thiago Silva missed the midweek Coppa Italia match against Lazio and is again sidelined as he nurses an injury.

He adds to a crisis that has ruled out Alexandre Pato, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Alberto Aquilani, Alexander Merkel, Gennaro Gattuso, Antonio Cassano, Mathieu Flamini and Mario Yepes.

However, Christian Abbiati has recovered from a shoulder injury and is back in the side.

Milan squad: Abbiati, Amelia, Abate, Antonini, Bonera, Mesbah, Mexes, Nesta, Zambrotta, Ambrosini, Emanuelson, Nocerino, Seedorf, Van Bommel, El Shaarawy, Ibrahimovic, Inzaghi, Maxi Lopez, Robinho
