Key Inter Milan Defender Could Be Back For Final Serie A Match Of Season Vs Torino
Defender Milan Skriniar could be back fit for the final match of Inter Milan’s Serie A season against Torino.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old will undergo medical consultations in France later this week to see whether he could already be fit enough to start on the bench against the Granata.
It is looking more and more likely that Skriniar will be fit before the end of the season.
Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi confirmed as much yesterday.
The coach stated that the Slovakian will undergo a medical consultation on Thursday. According to Inzaghi, it is a possibility that Skriniar can play in the final two matches of the Nerazzurri’s season.
This is a different prognosis from what had been thought when Skriniar initially received lumbar spine surgery.
The initial forecast was that the former Sampdoria defender would in all likelihood miss the entire rest of the season recovering. At the very least, it was suggested, he would be out until the Champions League final.
Milan Skriniar Could Be Fit For Inter Milan Vs Torino Clash
According to Tuttosport, however, this is not the case.
The newspaper report that the 28-year-old is already back in training. Moreover, Skriniar will undergo a medical consultation at a clinic in Merignac, France this week.
The purpose of the consultation will be to determine whether a return to the pitch against Torino is feasible.
In any event, Skriniar would only be fit enough to start on the bench. However, it is possible that the Slovakian could come off the bench and have some manner of send-off to the Inter fans.
Naturally, the relationship between the defender and the fans is not at its best due to the player’s decision to leave and join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. However, he could have his chance to say goodbye.
Then, Skriniar could be available for the Champions League final against Manchester City.
An appearance against Torino on the final day of the league season would be an extra opportunity for the 28-year-old to get match-fit so that he can be called upon against City.
