Cancelo has ligament strain

Inter have confirmed Joao Cancelo suffered a strain to his medial collateral ligament, and will be evaluated “week-by-week”.

The full-back only joined the Nerazzurri last week in a loan deal with Valencia, but he picked up a knee injury while on international duty with Portugal.

“Joao Cancelo was this morning subjected to medical and instrumental examinations at the Istituto Clinico Humanitas in Rozzano after the injury sustained in Portugal training yesterday.

“The examinations showed a tear to the medial collateral ligament of the right knee. Cancelo’s condition will be evaluated week-by-week.”
