AC Milan released 29-men squad to USA tour – Who are missing
AC Milan released a 29-man squad to the USA tour, and there are some notable absentees as Stefano Pioli took a strong team for pre-season fixtures.
Milan’s pre-season fixtures
The Rossoneri are travellling to Los Angeles for their pre-season tour in the United States.
Milan played their first pre-season friendly earlier, in which they beat Serie C side Lumezzane 7-0. Christian Pulisic bagged a brace of assists in the clash, while both Tommaso Pobega and Lorenzo Colombo got a brace of goals.
Milan will face significantly tougher opponents in the United States.
The 29-man squad
Goalkeepers: Maignan, Sportiello, Mirante, Nava.
Defenders: Kjaer, Tomori, Kalulu, Florenzi, Calabria, Theo Hernandez, Gabbia, Simic, Thiaw, Bartesaghi.
Midfielders: Krunic, Loftus-Cheek, Pobega, Adli, Zeroli, Reijnders.
Forwards: Pulisic, Leao, Giroud, Saelemaekers, Chaka-Traore, De Ketelaere, Messias, Colombo, Romero.
Who is missing from Milan’s squad to the US?
A few from the Primavera are included, while some first-team players are missing.
It’s worth noting that Fode Ballo-Toure, Mattia Caldara, Marko Lazetic, Divock Origi, and Ante Rebic have all been left out of the squad. Not because they are injured, but because they aren’t part of Milan’s plans and should leave.
Former Liverpool star Origi and Rebic had rejected offers from Saudi Pro League with determination to stay and fight for their spots.
However, Milan must sell to clear space for some more reinforcements, and the missing names could be heading out soon.
