Rodney Strasser has been ruled out for two to three months for Milan after fracturing his ankle during pre-season.
The 22-year-old is back with the Rossoneri this summer after a loan spell at Lecce and was set to be a part of the first-team squad under Massimiliano Allegri.
However, he already faces a spell on the sidelines, as the club confirmed today that he has fractured his ankle.
The Sierra Leone international picked up the injury in this morning’s training session at Milanello.
Milan notably struggled with injuries during last season, suffering more than every other team in the Division.
