Biggest player now out of huge game – Milan’s battle with injuries continues

Several sources this morning are spreading negative news about Rafael Leao’s condition in light of the two vital forthcoming games against Fiorentina and Borussia Dortmund.

According to this morning’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Leao returned to Milanello yesterday to continue treatment for his muscle problem after a few days of rest. The goal is straightforward: get rid of the hamstring injury he suffered at the start of the Lecce-Milan race as quickly as possible.

The winger is working hard to get back on the field and help the squad through a difficult period of the season, but his prospects of playing against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, November 28 are currently dwindling.


Leao’s absence from the match against BVB is almost certain, since a speedy recovery would be required to get him on the field at Milanello in time to build up fitness for the game.


Milan will thus be without their most potent weapon in perhaps the most important game of the season thus far, demonstrating that they are unable to find peace with injuries this season.
