On their website, AC Milan have announced that Mateo Musacchio will miss up to eight weeks of play, as the Argentinian picked up an injury against Real Betis.
The defender suffered a tough collision with teammate Franck Kessie, and he was subsequently forced to leave the pitch on a stretcher, at first fearing a head trauma. However, AC Milan ruled out this in their statement, instead declaring that he suffered a knee injury.
“AC Milan announces that, following a game clash last night during Real Betis vs AC Milan, Mateo Musacchio reported a trauma to his right knee that involved a lesion of the posterior cruciate ligament, an injury that will require 6 to 8 weeks conservative treatment.
“The medical examinations relevant to the concurrent head trauma have been completed with negative results,” the statement read.
