Boateng out for a month

Milan’s injury crisis in midfield gets even worse, as they confirm Kevin-Prince Boateng is out for at least a month.

The club released a statement this evening announcing that Boateng suffered a left thigh strain with lesion to the muscle during the 1-0 defeat to Inter on Sunday.

“The prognosis is around four weeks, save for complications.”

The same statement added that goalkeeper Christian Abbiati is suffering from a muscular problem in his left calf and “will be evaluated again in seven days.”

Boateng’s absence is very bad timing for the Rossoneri, as Alberto Aquilani and Gennaro Gattuso are also out for a month, while Mathieu Flamini is sidelined for another two months.

They scrambled for reinforcements today by recalling Alexander Merkel from Genoa, who co-own his contract, on a six-month loan spell.
