MN: Castillejo’s injury confirmed after MRI scan – his expected recovery time

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan winger Samu Castillejo is set to undergo further scans in 10 days after having an MRI on Monday, according to a report.

More misery was heaped on the Rossoneri as they lost 2-1 to Lazio at San Siro on Sunday night, their first home league defeat to the Aquile since 1989.

Ciro Immobile netted the opener for the away side with a trademark header, but Theo Hernandez’s cross was deflected in by Bastos to level the scores.

With the game heading for a drew Lazio managed to break and Joaquin Correa found himself in behind, finishing past a helpless Gianluigi Donnarumma to snatch all three points in the 83rd minute.

Castillejo was forced off just after the half hour mark with a muscular issue with Ante Rebic coming on to replace him.

It was a sad moment for the Spaniard who had been bright up until that moment, and he left the field in tears and clearly aware that serious damage had been done.

According to’s Anto Vitiello, Castillejo underwent an MRI which confirmed a lesion to the femoral bicep muscle of his left thigh, and that he will have another scan in 10 days.

He will miss the trip to Juventus and could also miss the visit of Napoli before the international break, as these types of injuries usually take around 20-40 days to recover from.
