Cagliari-Milan latest news live: Caldara snubbed again

16 September at 12:25
AC Milan face Cagliari tonight with the Rossoneri who are waiting for Gonzalo Higuain’s first goal of the season.

The Rossoneri boss Gennaro Gattuso spoke about the Argentinean’s attitude during yesterday’s press conference: “In last week’s friendlyHiguain looked like the angriest man in the world. When he struggles to score goals, he becomes really irritated and that shows what a champion he really is. He’s a player who is giving his all and sends an important signal to his teammates."

With Patrick Cutrone injured, AC Milan fully rely on the Argentinean striker to score at the Sant’Elia and end is goal drought.

The Italian tactician is not likely to start Mattia Caldara with Mateo Musacchio who will once again start in place of the former Atalanta man.
