Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia has been diagnosed with the fracture of two transverse processes of the lumbar vertebrae.
The Argentina international suffered a knock to the back during last night’s 1-0 defeat to Benevento at San Siro and had to be substituted.
A statement released by the club confirmed tests had shown the fracture of the transverse processes of the first two lumbar vertebrae.
Only over the next few days, after a specialist visitation, will there be a clearer idea of how long he’ll be out for.
It is a concern whether he’ll be fit not only for the Coppa Italia Final against Juventus, but at this stage for the World Cup.
