AC Milan Pick Up Another Injury As Croatian Left Winger Has Ankle Issue

The staff are cautiously optimistic over his return but it still leaves more questions for Pioli for the coming weeks.

AC Milan faced Hellas Verona and came away with an exceptional 3-2 comeback victory. Unfortunately Milan had another injury during the game as left winger Ante Rebic was forced off the pitch in the first half with an ankle problem.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Rebic was withdrawn at the 32nd minute due to a sprain on his left ankle. The pain was immense hence the Croatian could not go on and requested the substitution. He was replaced by Rafael Leao despite being the key source of creativity in the attack up to that point.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that the injury is not major and that the medical staff will be evaluating his progress day by day to determine when he can return. This rules out the fear of losing him for weeks and makes it likely to be days. It is likely that he misses the upcoming game against FC Porto tomorrow.
