Rebic adds to Milan injury crisis

by | Oct 16, 2021 20:39

The Milan injury list is growing even longer, as Ante Rebic limped off with a muscular problem against Hellas Verona.

The Croatia international had been their best player of the night so far at San Siro until he suddenly pulled up with a muscular issue.

He made way for Rafael Leao just 36 minutes into the Serie A match, with his team 2-0 down.

Rebic contributed two goals and two assists in nine competitive appearances so far this season between Serie A and the Champions League.

According to, Rebic already had a problem with his heel during training this week, so it could be a tight Achilles tendon.

The Rossoneri were already without Theo Hernandez and Brahim Diaz after they tested positive for COVID-19 this week.

Goalkeeper Mike Maignan has been ruled out for three months by wrist surgery, with third-choice goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari sidelined until January by a knee ligament tear.

Alessandro Florenzi, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Junior Messias are all on the treatment table.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back on the bench for only the second time this season, while Olivier Giroud returned to the starting XI.

    The Donnarumma Curse is for real!

    Milan’s injury curse predates the season, it started last November so Donnarumma has got nothing to do with it.

    The title could well be decided on injuries. This number of injuries is not good enough. It’s effecting a number of different players so it’s not the players. It needs to be looked ASAP. Unfortunately with modern football especially in Serie A (v say La Liga) there’s a tendency to deal with injuries by having massive squads rather than better training methods. The great Barca team a few years back won the treble utilising less than 20 core players.
