No Italian player featured in Milan‘s starting line-up against Salernitana for the first time in history.



La Gazzetta dello Sport highlights a somehow historical stat for the Rossoneri, who play against Salernitana on Monday night with no Italians in the starting XI.

Sandro Tonali was initially rested after having started every match since the beginning of the year.

The Italy international is on the bench along with his compatriots Davide Calabria, Alessandro Florenzi, Tommaso Pobega, Matteo Gabbia and Antonio Mirante.

Milan had always had at least one Italian player in their starting line-up in every Serie A match before tonight.

Italy coach Roberto Mancini will surely react to the news after the final whistle as he’s one of the announced guests of DAZN’s post-match show.

Olivier Giroud’s goal at the end of the first half helped the Rossoneri go to the break 1-0 up.
