Hard-tackling AC Milan
midfielder Gennaro Gattuso, sidelined since September with
a rare eye injury which led to speculation that his career was
under threat, is set to make his return in Wednesday's friendly
against Paris Saint-Germain.
"He is available, he is well and he will play for at least
45 minutes," coach Massimiliano Allegri told Italian media in
Dubai, where the game against the French side will take place.
Gattuso, 33, suffered a problem with the sixth cranial
nerve, one of the muscles which control the movement of the eye.
He went off after 20 minutes of the 2-2 draw against Lazio
on September 9 after aggravating the problem in a clash with team
mate Alessandro Nesta.
Gattuso saw several specialists about the problem before
being cleared to train again in November.
