Pellegri injured again

Monaco striker and Italy starlet Pietro Pellegri is facing yet another spell on the sidelines through injury.

The youngster shot to fame with Genoa during the 2017-18 campaign after he scored a brace against Lazio aged just 16.

He was subsequently bought by the French side in the January 2018 transfer window for a reported €25m.

Since then, however, Pellegri has been plagued with injuries, making only six appearances for Monaco in almost two years.

Those problems don't seem to be going away as he broke down again on Friday in training, this time with an injury to his right thigh. 

"Without suffering, we don't grow," wrote the attacker - still just 18 years old - on Instagram.

It marks his sixth injury since leaving the Rossoblu.
