Yunus Musah is pleased to be “back on track” at AC Milan, after returning them to winning ways, but he is about to step aside in the Champions League.
The United States international continues to make an impressive contribution at San Siro during his debut campaign in Italian football.
The versatile 20-year-old has settled quickly in new surroundings following his summer transfer from Valencia.
Musah was given another 84 minutes of Serie A action in Milan’s latest outing.
He helped them to a welcome 1-0 victory over Fiorentina.
Theo Hernandez scored the only goal from the penalty spot.
However, Musah and Christian Pulisic played their part in the collection of three hard-earned points.
Milan had gone four games without success in the Italian top-flight.
They are now up to third in the table and hoping to build momentum again after an unfortunate dip that led to uncomfortable questions being asked of title-winning coach Stefano Pioli.
Musah has defiantly said on social media: “Back on track”.
Musah is, however, about to get off that track as he will not figure in Milan’s next fixture.
The Rossoneri are due to play host to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Musah will be forced to sit that game out as he must serve a ban for collecting three yellow cards in European competition this season.
