It is time to pull the clock back for Andrea Conti, Almost a year and a half ago, on August 27, 2017, when Vincenzo Montella's AC Milan defeated Cagliari. It was the fifth match for Conti with the Rossoneri shirt after arriving from Atalanta that summer. Five appearances and five victories. A dream start, before a real nightmare.
The match against Cagliari, in fact, was the last official match played by Conti in the first team. First a sprained ankle, then the cruciate ligament rupture of the left knee, finally the second operation last April. A dark period, from which the player is coming with strength and a lot of desire for revenge.
At the beginning of the month, Conti returned to the field with AC Milan's youth side in a controversial game lost against Chievo which also led to his disqualification for three matches. A new forced stop, which has slowed down his return. Now, however, the time of Conti is about to arrive. Already last Sunday against Lazio, coach Gattuso thought about his inclusion. "Before our goal, I was thinking of substituting Calabria and Borini and putting on Laxalt and Conti, which shows that Andrea is starting to feel good. He has to improve in one-on-one, but he is growing," he said.
Words of esteem, which testify how the fullback is ready to play against. It is possible that this will happen already tomorrow, in the lunchtime matchup against Parma. In a real emergency of injuries, Milan is about to welcome back Conti, with the player ready to start from where he left off.
