It is believed that the 22-year-old centre-back will certainly sit out on Sunday as Rossoneri visiting Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona when Serie A 2022/23 resumes with Matchday 28.

Milan fans hope they will have their defender back at least for the return match of the Champions League quarterfinal at the Maradona on 19th of April.

However, the club is trying to avoid relapse as they are monitoring the Lyon-born footballer closely and not push things too much.

Kalulu has been Milan’s key player since his move in 2020, with the youngster played 37 games in all competitions so far this season, and the same amount of games at the season when Milan won Scudetto.

According to Opta, Kalulu is the only AC Milan player to have played in all 37 of the Rossoneri’s games this season in all competitions.

  • Serie A 2022/23 MD28: Napoli vs Milan
  • UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal first leg: Milan vs Napoli
  • UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal second leg: Milan vs Napoli

While Stefano Pioli’s side has no longer remained in the Serie A title race this season, a top-four position has now been the ultimate goal.

Milan are currently 23 points behind Napoli in fourth place and in a battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

It’s not an easy battle either, as Roma trail Milan by a single point with 11 games remaining, while sixth-placed Atalanta are a further two points back.

Moreover, a victory against the Naples side is a mentally important for Milan as they clash for two more times during the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal.

Kalulu’s comeback, possibly at the second leg will be a huge boost for Il Diavolo as he has been the trusted shield partnering Tomori at the back.
