Mattia De Sciglio will be out for over a month as Milan gave an update on the situations of him and of Zapata.
Things haven’t been going De Sciglio’s way this season as he hasn’t been able to impress and many fans seem to have lost faith in the right back who club and Italy legend Paolo Maldini called his ‘heir’.
De Sciglio saw a red card coming his way on last Saturday’s Serie A match and in the Coppa Italia mid-week tie he only played 45 minutes before leaving the pitch with an injury, which Milan confirmed today to be more serious than expected. Cristian Zapata was also injured on Tuesday.
“Milan announces that today further medical tests were carried out on De Sciglio and Zapata,” a statement on the website reads. “De Sciglio suffered an injury to the plantar fascia in his right foot. For Zapata the fracture at the base of the second metatarsal in his right foot has been confirmed.
“The two players will be re-evaluated in the next few weeks.” The Milan Channel reported earlier today that Mattia will be out for over a month. Meanwhile, Giampaolo Pazzini didn’t train today due to a flu while Marco Van Ginkel and Muntari trained regularly with the squad in training center Milanello.
