Milan have been dealt another injury blow as Clarence Seedorf has been ruled out of action for a month after picking up an injury midweek.
The Dutch veteran was forced off early on in the Rossoneri’s Champions League first leg clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night. Tests have now revealed the full extent of his complaint, with a strained hamstring diagnosed and likely to keep the No 10 out of action for at least a month.
His is not the only new injury concern for Coach Massimiliano Allegri, as Philippe Mexes also reportedly left training this week with a suspected sprained ankle.
The 4-0 win over Arsenal saw Kevin Prince Boateng and Alexandre Pato both return from recent lay-offs, but in preparing for the weekend trip to Cesena, Allegri is still without more than half a dozen first-team names, as well as the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
