Abate out for Milan

Ignazio Abate is reportedly out of Milan’s next two games against Parma and Juventus after picking up a suspected muscle strain in training.

The marauding full-back reportedly pulled up during the latter stages of the Rossoneri’s Tuesday training session and is set to undergo tests to understand fully the extent of his injury.

Whilst unconfirmed by the club, it is understood that the Italian international suffered a muscle strain which is believed to have definitely ruled him the out of Milan’s upcoming fixtures with Parma in the League on Saturday and Juventus in the Coppa Italia next Tuesday.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri is already likely to be without Robinho, who also picked up a knock in training this week, although he has been boosted by the return to training of Mario Yepes and Clarence Seedorf.
