On Sunday night, AC Milan managed a controlled 2-0 victory over newly promoted Crotone in Serie A. Thus, the Bodø / Glimt leaders win in the first two matches of the Italian league.
Milan is seen by many as one of the teams that can challenge Juventus for league gold this season, after several difficult years.
But one bit of joy for the “Rossoneri” is that Croatian star player Ante Rebic had to leave the field in clear pain against Crotone on Sunday night.
According to several Italian media, the 27-year-old lost his elbow when he landed too close, and the injury is expected to keep him off the pitch for several weeks.

Rebic has been one of the most important men in Milan in recent months. The left wing, together with Ibrahimovic, has been Milan’s main offensive weapon, and has ensured that blacks and reds have not lost since the League started again after the crown break.
I want star Glimt
Now that one of Milan’s most important offensive weapons is expected to be out for a while, Italian media is speculating that interest in Bodø / Glimt’s profile Jens Petter Hauge will accelerate further.
The 20-year-old himself says he hopes for a quick clarification:
– My agent has a direct contract with several clubs and believes that they take the initiative to pick me up as soon as possible. Clarification will be forthcoming, Hauge said Monday afternoon.
Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky that Rebic’s injury could force Milan to search the transfer market.
If the Croatian has to stay on the sidelines as long as feared, Di Marzio believes Milan’s attempt to capture Bodø / Glimt’s sensation Hauge will be accelerated.

Destroyed against Milan
Hauge has received much praise for his efforts in the Europa League game against Milan. The Bodø boy occasionally swept far more well-known opponents, scoring for a scorer and a goal in the game that Glimt lost 3-2. Hauge is described by many experts as the best player in the Eliteserien so far this season, where he is booked with 14 goals and 9 assists for the undefeated Bodø / Glimt.
Throughout the season, the 20-year-old Northerner has had to respond to rumors of interest from foreign clubs. Now it remains to be seen if he will remain in Bodø to secure the gold in the Elite Series, or if he will race for the grass in Italy this fall. The international transfer window closes on October 5.
