MILAN (AFP) - New AC Milan signing Keisuke Honda could make his debut for the Serie A giants after being included in the squad to face Sassuolo away from home on Sunday.
Honda was officially unveiled by the seven-time European champions last week following his recent arrival from CSKA Moscow on a free transfer.
The Japan international midfielder is lacking match fitness having been out of action for over a month and coach Massimiliano Allegri indicated he could make a substitute's appearance.
"He's not ready yet for the starting line-up but tomorrow he's in the squad and we'll see if there will be an opportunity during the match," Allegri told Milan Channel on Saturday.
Milan have slipped to 11th, 27 points behind leaders Juventus and 17 behind Napoli in the final Champions League qualifying spot.
