Philippe Mexes: Set for his AC Milan debut after finally recovering from knee injury
Philippe Mexes finally looks set to make his AC Milan debut this weekend, following his summer switch from Roma.
Mexes joined the Rossoneri on a free transfer this summer, but has been sidelined ever since the move.
The France defender, who has been out of action for six months with a knee injury, is set to return this weekend.
"I'm 100 per cent and I will be at the San Siro to play against Palermo," Mexes told Corriere dello Sport.
Milan have endured a slow start to the campaign, having mustered just five points from their opening five league games.
"It has been a difficult time but I'm sure we will pick ourselves up," Mexes said.
Milan lost 2-0 at Juventus last time out and lie 15th in the standings.
