At the Istituto Humanitas in Rozzano, Danilo D’Ambrosio underwent medical examinations. During yesterday’s game against Sampdoria, the defender picked up an injury. The tests showed that he had strained his left knee’s medial collateral ligament.
D’Ambrosio will be out for at least a week before more tests make it clear that he will play.
In Wednesday’s 2-1 Serie A defeat at Sampdoria, Inter Milan defender Danilo D’Ambrosio sustained a knee ligament injury, the club said on Thursday.
Italy’s Sky Sport said that for four to five weeks, the 32-year-old full-back might be out of action.
After a collision with Sampdoria midfielder Mehdi Leris, D’Ambrosio left the field shortly before the end of the game after coming on to replace Milan Skriniar in the 81st minute.
“The tests revealed that the Italian has strained the medial collateral ligament of his left knee. His condition will be reassessed next week,” Inter said in a statement.
The Italian international will miss the Serie A match on Sunday at AS Roma and the Coppa Italia match on Wednesday at Fiorentina.
Inter is second out of 16 games in the standings on 36 points, one point behind AC Milan, and three points ahead of Roma.
