Hakan Calhanoglu is gonna be a daddy!

The AC Milan winger/midfielder did not train today as he was in route to Germany to see the birth of his daughter. He also is a doubt for the weekend match against Chievo because of the arrival of his bundle of joy.

Obviously, missing Calhanoglu would create a hole in the lineup, but Milan can always use Samu Castillejo or Fabio Borini on the left wing. Gennaro Gattuso could even have Lucas Paquetà line up at left wing and insert Lucas Biglia back into the starting lineup.

Either way, allowing the Turkey international to spend time with his new baby is absolutely the right thing to do, because these are moments you won’t get back. And not that it really matters, but against Chievo? Come on, Milan will be just fine.

Anyway, congratulations to the new father!
