Giampiero Pinzi could be out of action for four-to-six weeks after suffering a thigh strain, confirmed the official Udinese website.
The midfielder picked up the injury during the final stages of Sunday’s 1-0 win over Torino.
He underwent tests today that highlighted a second-degree lesion to the muscle in the right thigh.
“The current prognosis, which can be defined with more precision over the next few weeks, is for the midfielder to be away from the pitch for 30-40 days.”
