Milan, Origi now worries: turning point in sight, in attack is an injury emergency

First in the standings, albeit in cohabitation, as well as the most convincing big player on the level of the game in this start of the season full of surprises and stumbles for several big names. Unexpected of the super-match against Napoli, the second direct clash of the season after the derby won, the Milan would have several reasons to look to the near future with optimism, at least in the league, given that the unexpected draw in Salzburg at the debut of the group Champions League he partially put up the race towards the second round.

Milan and the injury alarm: attack reduced to the bone

Yet at the Rossoneri there is a reason for concern and also a rather serious one regarding the injuries that have occurred copiously in the first part of the season. In addition to long-term resident Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose recovery plan after the knee operation in May continues smoothly in view of the probable return to the field in January, there are currently four other players in the infirmary, but above all the problems are causing alarm. from Ante Rebic And Divock Origi.

As always, in fact, injuries become a cause of serious emergency when they concern the same department: in the case of Milan in full emergency it is the offensive department, if it is true that for the fundamental matches against Dinamo Zagreb And Naples, before the break in the championship, Pioli will have only Olivier Giroud forward, joined by Rafa Leao, but only for the Champions League match, given the disqualification that the Portuguese will have to serve in the league after being sent off against Sampdoria.

AC Milan and Rebic’s fragility: the fact that worries Pioli

A real problem that can only be partially circumvented by deploying Charles De Ketelaere from the front and managing the few forces available. Adding to the concern is the fact that neither for Rebic nor for Origi are there any certainties about recovery times. The Croatian is now a regular at injuries, as confirmed by the statistics that, since his arrival at Milan in 2019, have already seen him miss 46 official matches, the 31.1% of the 148 total matches played by the Rossoneri in that period of time. The former Fiorentina, Verona and Eintracht had impacted the season very well with the brace at the first of the championship against Udinese, confirming himself as a very valid alternative both to Leao on the left of the 4-2-3-1 and to Giroud as the first striker in the event of necessity, which is why his absence creates many problems for Pioli.

Milan, Origi is now a case: the tendon worries, a blitz in Belgium for checks

Even more worrying is the situation of Origi, whose muscle injury thigh is becoming a case. The former Liverpool will fly to Belgium during the stop of the championship for the commitments of the national teams, but not to respond to the call of the coach Martinez, but to better understand through specialist visits the origin of the frequent fatigue suffered which could concern the tendons. The reality says that Origi is forced to stop after a couple of workouts precisely because of muscle overloads caused by the inflammation of the hamstring tendon, the same that forced Florenzi, the other excellent injured at the start of the season of Milan, to operate and a consequent long stop.

Origi’s muscular problems were known in the Milan home since the moment of the purchase of the Belgian striker, who precisely for this reason and for the need to undergo specific controlsi, he signed with the Rossoneri a few weeks late, but no one would have expected that after a month of the season the Belgian’s playing time could be so small: just 81 minutes between the league and the Champions League. Milan has focused on Origi for his international experience and his tactical flexibility, but now finds himself in the key moment of the first phase of this anomalous season struggling with a serious emergency in attack. Obviously excluding the use of the free transfer market, the club and the fans rely on the experience and skill of Stefano Pioli called to make a virtue of necessity to keep the team at the highest level in all competitions.
