Official: Romagnoli has calf tear

Alessio Romagnoli is expected to be out for at least four weeks after Milan confirmed a “lesion of the myotendinous junction of the medial segment of the left calf.”

The injury was sustained during training with Italy on Friday and forced him to pull out of the squad facing Portugal in the Nations League this evening.

“This morning, Alessio Romagnoli underwent the medical examinations with the Club's medical staff that revealed a lesion of the myotendinous junction of the medial segment of the left calf suffered yesterday, Friday, November 16, during the training with the National team,” read a statement.

“The red and black defender will undergo further clinical-instrumental controls within 10 days.”

This fits in with the Sky Sport Italia report that Romagnoli will be out of action for approximately four weeks.

It is a similar injury to the one sustained by his Milan teammate Lucas Biglia, as that too involved the myotendinous junction with the calf, but the Argentine isn’t expected back until March.

Mateo Musacchio, Giacomo Bonaventura and Mattia Caldara are also all out with long-term injuries.
