AC Milan midfield duo injured
The Rossoneri are already without first team regulars Stephan El Shaarawy, Giampaolo Pazzini, Ignazio Abate, Mattia De Sciglio, Daniele Bonera and Mathias Silvestre.
The club’s medical staff released a short statement yesterday regarding new injuries picked up during the 2-2 draw away at Torino on Saturday.
Montolivo suffered a lesion to the femoral bicep in the left thigh, though more tests are needed to confirm the length of his absence.
Poli only has a heavy bruise to his right leg which was sustained during the collision with Giovanni Pasquale that earned the last-gasp penalty for Milan against Torino.
Montolivo is certainly out for Wednesday’s Champions League game with Celtic and next week’s Serie A clash with league leaders Napoli, while Poli’s potential comeback is unknown at this stage.
