Inter have officially confirmed that Zinho Vanheusden has suffered a cruciate ligament injury.
The youngster was stretchered off in tears during yesterday’s UEFA Youth League match against Dynamo Kiev, immediately sparking fears of a serious injury.
The Belgian is Coach Luciano Spalletti’s fourth centre-back, so a serious injury leaves only Miranda, Milan Skriniar and Andrea Ranocchia.
“The tests performed on Zinho Vanheusden have revealed that the player has a sprained anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee,” the Nerazzurri confirmed on their official website.
“The defender will undergo surgery in the coming days.”
