Milan: ’El Shaarawy healing’

Milan have released an update on the condition of Stephan El Shaarawy, saying his metatarsal injury is healing as expected.

The Italian international has been out of action since January with the foot injury, and said this week he’s targeting a Derby della Madonnina return.

It appears that target is still possibe, as the Rossoneri confirm that the striker will have another scan in a month’s time.

“Today, and in line with the times set out after the injury sustained on the 24th of January, Stephan El Shaarawy underwent a specialist visit, which also included x-rays, with professor Niek Van Dijk,” Milan announced on their official website.

“The outcome of the visit was satisfactory and the compound fracture at the base of the fifth metatarsal bone in the right foot is healing.

“The next step is more rest and treatment for around 1 month. At the end of this stage, Stephan will undergo another check-up with a specialist.”
