Milan’s injury crisis is already in full flow, as after Alexandre Pato’s setback now Robinho is out for up to a month.
The official club website released a statement this afternoon confirming tests had shown a “first degree strain to the right thigh during Sunday’s Milan-Sampdoria match.
“The recovery time is expected to be three to four weeks, save for complications.”
It is another bitter blow for the Rossoneri, who already lost Pato to a muscular problem during the Trofeo Berlusconi earlier this month.
Missing Robinho will only further add to the striker shortage, which is now becoming chronic.
