"Bad luck exists only for those who feel unlucky". Stefano Pioli doesn't want an alibi, but he probably can't wait for this 'terrible' week to end. Because on the eve of the match against Verona, after having had to manage the injury of Maignan, that of Messias and the absence of Theo Hernandez, the news arrives of the positivity of Brahim Diaz at Covid. Milan lose pieces every day, fundamental men for the game and the balance of the team. The goalkeeper, the winger and now the attacking midfielder, the player who made the most evident leap in quality in the squad. "We have to grit our teeth in the face of difficulties and demonstrate our qualities in overcoming them." The Rossoneri coach doesn't want to feel sorry for himself but what AC Milan has to face is a real feat.The rest of the team underwent a swab with negative results but if Pioli does not want to talk about bad luck, it can be said that the blindfolded Goddess seems to have turned her back on the Rossoneri team. It is the umpteenth show of strength of a young Milan that seems forced to grow too quickly. Against Verona, Daniel Maldini could play the starter instead of Diaz. Giroud will return to the field, while the verdict on Ibrahimovic will only be known on Saturday.Giroud will return to the field, while the verdict on Ibrahimovic will only be known on Saturday.Giroud will return to the field, while the verdict on Ibrahimovic will only be known on Saturday.
