Medel out for three weeks

Bologna midfielder Gary Medel has been ruled out for three weeks with a muscle injury.

The 32-year-old former Inter player pulled up in training with a suspected muscle problem yesterday.

It has since been confirmed that he aggravated his left hamstring and will therefore be sidelined for approximately three weeks.

Medel joined the Rossoblu from Besiktas last summer after two seasons with the Turkish side.

He has played 16 times in all competitions this season.

De Leo: 'Miha loves tension!'

Bologna assistant coach Emilio De Leo says they are too wasteful in front of goal and that Sinisa Mihajlovic likes to get riled up. “He wants tension until the last minute of a game.”

The Rossoblu raced into a 3-0 lead against Lecce at the Stadio Via del Mare, but wasted a handful of chances before the home side scored twice to make the scoreline look a lot less comprehensive.

Serie A: Four players suspended

There are four players suspended for this weekend’s Serie A games, including Bologna midfielder Gary Medel and Verona’s Koray Gunter.

Verona defender Gunter, Bologna midfielder Medel and Lecce’s Luca Rossettini are also suspended for Week 15.

It means ‘Pitbull’ Medel will miss the meeting with Milan at the Stadio Dall’Ara.

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,
