Milan must do without Suso for a few weeks due to a left thigh injury, tests showed on Saturday.
The Spaniard left the pitch last week when Milan faced Chievo after 34 minutes but was on the bench last night for the controversial 2-1 defeat to Juventus.
It seems, however, that Suso’s injury did not heal properly. “Milan announces that Saturday 11th March, Suso underwent medical examinations which revealed a left thigh biceps femoris injury,” a statement on Milan’s website reads. “Recovery times will be evaluated based on the evolution of the clinical picture.”
Sky stated earlier that the estimations are that Suso will 100% miss the game next Saturday with Genoa and will try to use the international break to recover. It’s also said that it could take him up to four weeks to recover but these are voices that have not yet been confirmed by the club.
This is a huge blow for Milan as the 23-year-old has been instrumental this season so far. It’s important to note that Jose Sosa and Alessio Romagnoli are suspended for the Genoa match, while Carlos Bacca is in doubt after suffering a knock last night at the Juventus Stadium.
With both Giacomo Bonaventura and Suso out, it will be up to Lucas Ocampos and Gerard Deulofeu – both joined Milan on loan in January – to carry the team on the wings. Get well soon, Suso!
