Mathieu Flamini suffered a thigh injury that will probably keep him out of the Italian Super Cup, announced Milan.
The midfielder picked up the problem during yesterday’s training session and underwent tests today.
Although it is “not a serious injury, Flamini expects to rest for around 15 days, if there are no complications.”
It is unlikely the former Arsenal midfielder will recover in time to play the Italian Super Cup clash on August 6.
Milan travel to Beijing’s Olympic Stadium to face Inter in the traditional season opener.
