Santana out for a month

Torino will be without Mario Alberto Santana for at least a month, as tests have found a tear in the thigh muscle.

The former Palermo, Fiorentina and Napoli midfielder pulled out in the warm-up for Sunday’s game against Cagliari.

It was believed he had only suffered a minor strain to the left thigh, but further tests have now confirmed a tear.

This type of injury is expected to keep Santana out of action for around a month.

The Argentine creative midfielder is currently on loan from Napoli.
