GdS: Pioli considers Gagliardini replacements

Roberto Gagliardini will almost certainly miss Inter’s match against Crotone this Sunday, but will return in time to face AC Milan on Easter Saturday.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, his condition is being monitored day by day, but no risks will be taken. A relapse would be unthinkable, given the Nerazzurri still have to face Fiorentina and Napoli, as well as their city rivals.

Stefano Pioli must now decide whether to deploy Marcelo Brozović alongside Geoffrey Kondogbia, or give João Mário a chance in a deeper position.

The emergency situation could also require Cristian Ansaldi or Gary Medel to play in midfield, with Jeison Murillo set to return to central defence beside Miranda.

The coach has never used the Chilean in midfield before, while he would miss the derby should he pick up a yellow card at the weekend.
