Giroud hamstring scare in Madrid adds to Milan woes

There are more injury worries for Milan, as Olivier Giroud pulled up with a suspected hamstring strain during the Champions League match with Atletico Madrid.

The France international started the game at the Wanda Metropolitano.

He pulled up suddenly while running for the ball, clutching his left hamstring.

Giroud was immediately substituted at the 66th minute, making way for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The fact he stopped short mid-run and was holding onto his hamstring suggests a possible tear.

If confirmed, that type of injury will require several weeks on the touchline.

The 35-year-old had only just returned from a period out through injury, scoring four goals in 12 appearances this season between Serie A and the Champions League.

It is news that coach Stefano Pioli really did not want, as he already made the trip to Madrid without injured Ante Rebic, Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Mike Maignan, Alessandro Plizzari and Samu Castillejo.

Rafael Leao is not fully fit either after having played practically non-stop this season to plug the various gaps in the squad.

    This is why we need to stop investing in dinosaurs as backup. Give some time to Pellegri.
