Loftus-Cheek.. There is a date for his return: Milan’s “crisis” in his absence is explained by the numbers  first page

Oh God, the crisis… the Milan Sitting third in the standings, three points behind Inter, we certainly cannot talk about a team in crisis. But it has Lost four points in two daysAnd a machete Injuries Stefano’s team hits with some hesitation Pegs, which also deals with the groans of the most representative players as they are taken off the field. And for this Return from the infirmary is most welcomeespecially when it comes to Ruben Loftus-Cheekthe midfielder with the best data in terms of minutes played so far.

What is the problem – “The MRI, which midfielder Loftus-Cheek underwent this morning (after the match against Lazio about a month ago, ed.), showed that Mild distraction occurred In the close pubic area. No further tests have been scheduled, and the clinical development will be monitored daily, as stated in the medical bulletin He was supposed to return after the break, but that did not happenPioli was keen to clarify matters: “He has recovered from the injury he suffered in the small muscle, the sphincter, now.” He suffers from pubic/abdominal inflammation. “He seems to be getting better every day, and he still needs the final step to get back into the team.” This step now seems so close that, If not against Udinese, the feeling is that the former Chelsea player could be available for the very important Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain. next week.

Still the highest numbers – Even though he was gone for a month Loftus-Cheek has numbers that can easily be compared to those of Reinders, who has played 10 out of 10 league games..

Reijnders, in 845 minutes (almost double) has not scored a single goal – A couple, like the one in Naples, are sore losers – With two shots on target out of 17, and one assist, he won 30 duels on the ground and only two in the air.. The Dutchman makes up for this with key passes, 10 to Loftus’s 5, but let’s repeat, he has played practically twice as many minutes. Physiques and abilities are different, and the comparison is not meant to prove that one should replace the other, but just to give an idea of ​​how much Pioli needs his best performing midfielder: duels, shooting accuracy, intensity and consistency again to serve the team. a team.
