Simon Kjær comeback: AC Milan wins 3-0 over Monza

Simon Kjær was in the starting lineup with AC Milan against Monza on 17 December 2023, after a muscle injury that lasted almost two months. And what a comeback. He played an amazing match and brought vibes to the team like only he can.

Simon Kjær is happy to be back

As we can see from his post on X.

Simon Kjær's recovery from the muscle injury

Simon Kjær suddenly seemed to have recovered from the muscle injury. The injury occurred around 25 October against PSG. Many times it was said that he was about to return, but that just didn't happen for quite a while. He first showed up during a training session on 6 December 2023. So we thought he was back.

But then again he disappeared.

It took ten more days until he showed up in a training session with the group on 15 December 2023. With the match against Monza coming up, this was a positive thing.

What happened next?

On 16 December the team gathered at the hotel with the team and yes, Simon Kjær was there too. They stayed at the hotel to be ready for the early match against Monza on Sunday.

Simon Kjær in the starting lineup against Monza

On Sunday morning the news reached us that Simon Kjær would be in the starting lineup against Monza. What a great news! Soon we saw Simon arriving. Looking sharp. As usual.

Simon Kjær played a great match

Our favourite defender showed a strong performance against Monza. He made many great saves and he looked as if he had never been away. He also celebrated with Simić, who made his debute and scored the 2-0 in the 41st minute.

Simon was substituted in the 67th minute. Pioli said: "The idea was to protect Kjær, after a long injury break".

Comments about Simon Kjær's comeback

Some comments from the media:

"He sees himself back on the pitch 56 days after the last time and it seems like he has never left his place: experience, positioning and great concentration. A performance like a defense professor." -

"Having just come back from injury, he looked really good as he won almost every single duel with his man. In the first half, he also made a crucial block to deny the Milan loanee Colombo what looked like a certain goal. Very encouraging in the centre of a back three." -
