Tottenham boost: AC Milan set to be without key man for Champions League first-leg

AC Milan are set to be without one of their key players for Champions League first-leg vs Tottenham...


Tottenham Hotspur travel to Milan on February 14 to face the Italian giants in the Champions League Round of 16.

Antonio Conte will face one of his old enemies in AC Milan, who he has faced 14 times as a coach, winning 10 and losing just once.

Ahead of next month’s clash, Milan have been handed some bad injury news, losing one of their key players.

Maignan suffers injury setback

AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan has suffered another injury setback.

The Frenchman missed the World Cup with a calf injury and has been sidelined since the start of October.

He has now missed 15 matches this season for Milan and is set to miss even longer.

According to Gazetta Dello Sport, the 27-year-old will be out for a further 40-50 days.

This could be great news for Tottenham Hotspur who Milan face in the Champions League.

The first-leg is set to take place in 33 days and the second-leg is 55 days from today.

Milan have kept just four clean sheets since Maignan’s injury and his absence would be a major blow for them.
