Theo Hernandez is set to miss the game against Empoli due to an injury in the adductor level. The super left-back could not be part of the France national team camp due to this physical issue that he has been suffering.
Stefano Pioli, AC Milan‘s head coach, is certainly studying the best way to replace the former Real Madrid defender as the left flank is a key pillar for him especially in the attacking phase.
According to what is reported today by Il Corriere dello Sport in today’s print edition, it is likely that Davide Calabria could be the one to replace Theo on the left. Senegalese defender Fodé Ballo-Touré does not seem to be in the plans of Stefano Pioli for the next game as things stand. It remains to be seen who should play as the starting right-back.
