AC Milan’s defensive injuries have been troublesome so far, but there seems to be a light at the end of the San Siro tunnel.
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has had a rough time so far this season in terms of injuries, with the back line specifically hit by a spate of injuries.
Alessandro Nesta has not yet stepped foot on a pitch in an official game this season, while the same can be said of new signing Philippe Senderos. The most recent casualty was that of Kakha Kaladze against Zurich in the UEFA Cup.
Rossonero luck seems to be changing however, with good news arriving from the Milan medical staff concerning the recovery of some key defenders. Nesta is ready to return to normal training, and could even make his season debut against Sampdoria next weekend.
Senderos is almost ready to join the squad in normal training, and is expected to do so before the end of the week. Kaladze is progressing well and commented on his recovery, saying, “I am feeling much better, especially compared to this most recent period. In a few days I will start to run. I believe that I will be available for the team towards the end of October, beginning of November.”
