AC Milan look set to play the rest of the season without captain after the defender limped off against Sassuolo on Wednesday.

The Italian came off after just 32 minutes of play with Matteo Gabbia replacing him.

Initial reports suggested Romagnoli would miss out on Friday’s match with Atalanta, but it now appears his muscular injury is more serious than first thought and as a he is expected to miss Milan’s three matches.

Stefano Pioli confirmed the news while speaking with Milan TV, noting that the 25-year-old had played every minute prior to being forced off against Sassuolo.

It doesn’t end there for Milan and Pioli, as picked up a knock to his left knee and will also miss out on Friday’s match.

Theo and Ismael Bennacer are also unavailable due to suspension.
