Season over for Inzaghi

The season is over for Pippo Inzaghi after damaging knee ligaments, while Alexandre Pato will miss games against Inter and Fiorentina.

Milan were celebrating the leadership of Serie A and their 3-1 victory over Palermo last night, but it came at a heavy price.

“AC Milan announce that the player Filippo Inzaghi underwent tests this morning which confirmed the lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament and associated lesion to the external meniscus of the left knee,” read a statement.

“After a specialist consultation with Dr Piero Volpi, a surgical intervention was advised.”

This means the season is effectively over for Inzaghi and it remains to be seen if he can ever play again, as the striker is already 37 years old.

Pato limped off during the same match with a minor thigh strain, but it is still enough to rule him out of matches against Inter on Sunday and Fiorentina on November 20.

He will also miss out on Brazil's friendly against Argentina on November 17.
