Mike Maignan will be sidelined for at least 10 weeks after wrist surgery. AC Milan has recruited goalkeeper Antonio Mirante as a replacement for Mike Maignan and the Italian will be registered for the Champions League. In addition to Maignan, the Rossoneri will be without third-choice goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari until January as he has suffered a knee injury, hence, the move was necessitated.
Only Ciprian Tatarusanu would have been able to take the gloves for the next three months. Mirante became a free agent after his contract with Roma expired, and he has agreed to stay with the club until the end of the season the club confirmed. The 38-year-old has previously represented Crotone, Juventus, Sampdoria, Parma, and Bologna and now for Milan, he will wear the number 83 jersey.
Because Maignan has been away for more than 30 days, UEFA has a loophole that allows the goalie to be replaced in the Champions League team, which means Mirante will be available for the rest of the European group games.
Today, Maignan had keyhole surgery on his left wrist, which included repairing a ligament injury as well as securing a percutaneous pedicle screw to the scaphoid bone in his wrist owing to a vascular issue.
According to a statement from the club, the France international will have his wrist immobilized in a cast for six weeks before commencing the rehabilitation process. He’ll be out of commission for ten weeks.
