AC Milan: Mike Maignan back against Tottenham?


Absent since the end of September, the international goalkeeper hopes to be operational on February 14, on the occasion of the eighth

In this very gloomy period, AC Milan, heavily defeated in its last three games, welcomes the next return of Mike Maignan as a happy omen.

Unavailable since the end of September, the French goalkeeper seems to be on target.

A few days ago, Paolo Maldini, the Lombard sports director, had already sent positive signals about the former Lille player who was decisive in winning the title in the spring of 2022.

The last exams seem to have gone well.

We expect to have him in February, I don't know when exactly ,

the former Italian defender told DAZN.

According to our information, the Rossoneri staff are considering their presence for the Champions League round of 16 first leg against Tottenham on February 14.

Several sources consulted agree that this deadline is reasonable.

“It is possible, even if, after a long absence, we should remain cautious.

No risk will be taken with him”, confides to us a person close to the file while wanting to be “reasonably optimistic”.

Between now and this European meeting, two league matches are on the menu for Olivier Giroud's partners, relegated to 5th place in Serie A after their defeat at home in front of Sassuolo on January 29 (5-2): the first against at Inter, on February 5, then the second against Torino, five days later.

To claim a starting place in C1, where he would cross paths with a certain Hugo Lloris, Maignan will undoubtedly have to be in the group against the Piedmontese club.

This therefore requires a very rapid resumption of collective sessions.

For the record, he injured his left calf for the first time with the Blues on September 22 during a League of Nations match against Austria (2-0).

While his return to the field was imminent, he suffered a relapse in October, which forced him to give up the World Cup as Lloris' understudy.

After the international retirement of Hugo Lloris, Maignan (5 selections), international since 2019, is promised a starting place in the cage of the vice-world champions.

The next match of the Blues is scheduled for March 24 against the Netherlands, as part of the qualifications for Euro-2024 (June 14 - July 14).

The tricolor staff is kept informed of its evolution as of that of all the players forfeited for the World Cup.
