This is going to be a wasted season for Mattia Caldara, isn’t it?
Gennaro Gattuso said that Mattia Caldara, who was just coming back from injury, will be out for another couple months after picking up another injury. The gaffer said to Sky Sport Italia:
We’re going to lose Caldara for a couple of months. He had a problem with the medial ligament, it’s a cursed season for him, really disappointing for the lad.
Caldara was one of the biggest acquisitions for Milan during the summer transfer window, as he came to Milan from Juventus as part of the deal that saw Leonardo Bonucci return to Turin and Gonzalo Higuain move to the San Siro. Caldara had been a rock at the back for Atalanta, first as a player for the squad and then as a loanee from Juve, and he was part of their success last season that saw them qualify for a Europa League spot. Of course, they haven’t been as successful this season, and it’s at least partly down to his departure.
So we’ll have to wait even longer to see Caldara play in a Serie A match for Milan.
