KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG will undergo a surgery in his hand while Montolivo may face a month out.

Boateng played full 90 minutes yesterday but picked-up an injury yesterday during the 1-3 victory against Bologna away, in which he was one of the best players, finally resembling the Boateng of last seasons.

The Prince was lively, creating good runs, passes and shots, but he fractured the metacarpal in his right hand. Boateng will undergo a surgery tomorrow (Monday) but isn’t expected to miss any games for Milan.

Serie A resumes for Milan only on September 16 as this is now the first international break of the season. Boateng, a retired Ghana international at 25, will be back in contention already for the Atalanta match. A guy who’s likely to miss this game is Riccardo Montolivo who picked up a muscular injury against Bologna.

Initial reports are suggesting that Montolivo will face a spell of 3-4 weeks out but there will be more tests in the next days. Robinho and maybe even Alexandre Pato should be fit to face Atalanta in two weeks.
