Simon Kjaer is missed in Stefano Pioli’s lineup and system. The 32-year-old Dane defender is out until the rest of the season due to injury. Unfortunately the former Lille and Sevilla centre-back will not be able to contribute with his leadership and strength to the team.
According to the newspaper, Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara will struggle to find a good performing centre-back especially after missing out on qualifying to the Champions League next stage. Passing through to the next round would have brought in an extra amount of money to the club’s coffers.
