AC Milan Star Could Be Fined By His Own Club After Injuring Chelsea Loanee

Posted by

Chelsea’s loans are not working out for them this season, in particular Marco Van Ginkel’s spell in Italy…

Sulley Muntari was never afraid of going in for a full blooded tackle, but the former Portsmouth player’s love of a stiff challenge may have backfired.

The Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that the midfielder injured Marco Van Ginkel in training at Milanello, and could receive a fine for his clumsiness.

Van Ginkel, who is on loan at Milan from Chelsea as he recovers from a long term cruciate injury, had his ankle damaged by Muntari’s tackle, and could be out of action for up to six weeks, although this is a bare minimum according to GdS.

The Italian paper speaks of a “general rage” against Muntari, who is being blamed for the injury, and speculate that a “hefty fine” could be levied against the Ghanaian midfielder.

Milan continue to struggle under Filippo Inzaghi, and they lost again against surprise-package Genoa last weekend.

Van Ginkel’s loan spell is proving to be a total disaster for Chelsea. The 22-year-old was barely played in the early months of the season and since breaking into the side has had his time on the pitch severely limited by a series of niggling injuries.

Being hurt by his own teammate in training was the last thing the former Vitesse star needed.
