  30/10/2013: Injury Update
email print  
The aftermath of the much needed win against Cagliari has been evolving around the injuries picked up. Pretty early in the first half Novaretti was seen holding his thigh, but managed to play the first half to the end before being replaced by Ciani. Biglia was seen limping after the 90 minutes and after some check-ups on Monday and Tuesday both were ruled out for at least a week with muscular problems.

Added to the above, where Biglia's right calf and Novaretti's right thigh seem to be the areas of concern, Biava and Dias are both sidelined due to injuries. The lack of central defenders, three out of five currently injured, has forced an inclusion of Elez in the squad for tonight's match.

But the list does not end there, as also Lulic and Konko are ruled out. The latter is back and training with the squad though and the medical staff are suggesting Konko could be included in the squad facing Genoa at the weekend. Lulic is still undergoing rehab training and it is not yet settled when the Bosniac will be back training with the first team.

Finally, Vicinius will resume training after weeks of absence while Alfaro continues to be sidelined. Neither has played yet this season and the injuries do not pose any greater problem for Petkovic, but surely the tactician wish he had a full squad to pick from when facing Milan this evening.
