Kjaer injury: Will he play against Newcastle? Here’s what emerges from Milan camp

Simon Kjaer, the mainstay of AC Milan’s defence, has sustained an injury that obliges him to undergo customised training, as reported by SkySport.

As a result, Kjaer is highly likely to miss the forthcoming Champions League match against Newcastle United. This would be a significant blow for Milan as they prepare for this critical fixture.

There are strong suggestions that Theo Hernandez will once again fill in at centre-back in Kjaer’s absence. Despite his natural position being a left back, Hernandez has shown adaptability when asked to play in central defence earlier this season.

The details of Kjaer’s injury are not yet fully disclosed, but the seriousness of this issue is apparent from personalised training the Danish defender is receiving.

Milan and their fans will certainly hope that Kjaer’s injury is not too severe, given his critical role in the Rossoneri defense. While Hernandez has demonstrated his versatility, the familiarity and solidity that Kjaer brings at the heart of Milan’s rearguard will be sorely missed in their upcoming Champions League engagement with Newcastle.
