Pizarro out for 10 days

Fiorentina will be without midfielder David Pizarro for the next 10 days after further tests on his injury.

The Chilean limped off during the surprise 2-0 home defeat to Pescara on Sunday afternoon and there were initial fears he had fractured his shin.

However, tests showed it is only a sprained ankle with no damage to the ligaments or bones, so he’ll be out of action for around 10 days.

It means Pizarro won’t be able to face his former club Roma in next week’s Coppa Italia Quarter-Final.

Juan Cuadrado also sprained his foot on Sunday, but he was in training today and well on the road to recovery.
