Blunt trauma for Balotelli

Mario Balotelli is set for tests today by Milan medical staff on a shoulder injury picked up against Atletico Madrid.

The forward fell heavily on his right shoulder after a challenge by Diego Costa during the second half of the Rossoneri’s 1-0 defeat to Atleti in the Champions League Last 16 first leg.

Balotelli soon had to be replaced due to the complaint and post-match, initial indications are that he has suffered a blunt trauma to the shoulder.

The 23-year-old is set to undergo tests in the coming hours to ascertain more accurately any damage suffered and prognosis.
