Bologna lose Medel for a month

Bologna will be without midfielder Gary Medel for at least a month after he returned from international duty with a thigh strain.

The Chile international had been playing a 0-0 draw with Colombia at the weekend when he limped off.

He returned to Italy for tests and a grade I lesion has now been confirmed in the right bicep muscle.

This means Medel will be out action for approximately a month.

He turned 32 in August and has made six Serie A appearances since his late move from Fenerbahce to Bologna,

Hamstring strain for Medel

Bologna midfielder Gary Medel has been sent home early from international duty with Chile after suffering a hamstring strain.

The player took part in last night’s 0-0 draw with Colombia, but pulled out in the closing stages clutching the back of his thigh.

A statement from the Chilean football federation confirmed Medel has been diagnosed with a hamstring injury in the right leg.

He is therefore returning to Italy and the Stadio Dall’Ara to begin a personalised recovery programme with Bologna.

Colombia drew 0-0 with Chile in an international friendly this evening.

Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata lasted only 23 minutes before he had to be replaced and will require tests on a muscular issue.

Medel: Mihajlovic convinced me

Gary Medel has revealed that Sinisa Mihajlovic played a key role in his move to Bologna.

Medel moved to Bologna towards the end of the summer transfer window, with the Chilean inspired by Mihajlovic, who remains in charge at the Dall’Ara despite his ongoing battle with leukaemia.

“I wanted to go back to Italy, but a phone call with Sinisa Mihajlovic was what clinched my decision to join Bologna,” said the former Inter midfielder at a Press conference.

'Miha presence must inspire Bologna'

Sinisa Mihajlovic has held his first Bologna training session in over a month ahead of their Serie A match against SPAL on Friday.

“The Coach is back to being very present and very combative,” assistant Emilio De Leo said at a Press conference.
