Official: Milan smile as Leao is given permission to leave Portugal camp early

Rafael Leao of Portugal during the international friendly match between Portugal and Sweden on March 21, 2024 in Guimaraes, Portugal.

Rafael Leao played 45 minutes for Portugal in their 5-2 win against Sweden last night and he was one of the best players on the pitch. Along with a few other stars of the team, however, it has been agreed that he will leave the international duties. 

As confirmed by Sky Italia on X, Portugal manager Roberto Martinez has left the likes of Nelson Semedo, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, Joao Palhinha, Toti Gomes, Bruno Fernandes, Goncalo Ramos and Leao out of the squad for next week’s friendly against Slovenia.

There are no injuries behind this decision. Instead, Martinez wants to give other players the chance while also allowing the stars to rest, ahead of a hectic schedule with their respective clubs. Good news for Milan, in other words, though Leao will likely get a few days of vacation now.

Training resumed at Milanello yesterday for those who haven’t been sent out on international duty. Leao will likely join the rest of his teammates at the start of next week, as the team will begin preparations for the game against Fiorentina. Unfortunately, Theo Hernandez will be suspended for that clash.

Of course, Leao might decide to return to Milanello and skip the mini-vacation, but some days off would probably be good for him.
