De Sciglio avoids serious injury

Milan have confirmed that Mattia De Sciglio has avoided serious injury but is expected to be out for several weeks with sprained ankle ligaments.

De Sciglio was thought to be facing a two-month layoff after he left Milan’s 2-1 defeat to Udinese on crutches following a lunge from Rodrigo De Paul, but while the full-back faces downtime, his injury is not as bad as first feared.

“AC Milan can confirm that during Udinese-Milan, Mattia De Sciglio suffered a sprain to his right ankle, with the involvement of his capsular ligament,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

“His recovery time will be evaluated based on his clinical development. Giacomo Bonaventura, on the other hand, needs more tests on a problem in the adductor region.”
