Honda set for Milan debut at Sassuolo

AC Milan's new signing, Japanese midfielder Keisuke Honda, arrives to take part in his official presentation at San Siro stadium in Milan, northern Italy on January 8, 2013

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.
