Milan undergo huge injury blow following Hernandez muscular strain

With the Rossonerri set to embark on a difficult stretch of the campaign following the international break, Milan have undergone a huge injury blow following Theo Hernandez’s muscular strain suffered during the Napoli fixture.

As highlighted by MilanNews, the French international full-back suffered a strain within the right abductor, ruling him out Milan’s clash against Empoli and labelling him as a major doubt for the Rossonerri’s  next Champions League fixture against Premier League giants Chelsea.

With the 24 year-old defender withdrawing from France’s Nations League fixtures against Austria and Denmark taking place this week, the left-footed starlet hopes to recover in time for Milan’s vital fixture against bitter-rivals Juventus on the 8th of October.

So far this season, the full-back has played a vital role within the back-line, attaining a goal and an assist within the first seven Serie A fixtures.
