Straight after their victory over Sampdoria, another unpleasant news arrived for Ac Milan fans as the club’s official medical team announced that the Rossoneri will be missing another important striker, Alexandre Pato, for about two or three weeks due to injury he picked up during last weekend’s match.
The news was revealed on the club’s official site by Dr. Gianluca Melegati, confirming that the problem hitting Pato was a flexor strain in his right thigh, pretty much the kind of injury the Brazilian starlet often suffered.
“A.C. Milan Chief Medical Officer Dr Gianluca Melegati announces that medical tests carried out this morning have revealed a flexor strain in Alexandre Pato’s right thigh. The player is expected to be out for 2 to 3 weeks,” an official statement from Milan’s site wrote.
This news surely give a little bit concern for Milan fans as for the time being the club won’t be able to play with their two main strikers, Pato and Ibrahimovic in the next two Serie A matches, because the Swede picked up a three match suspension in the match against Fiorentina, a week before the Sampdoria game. The unfortunate coincidence surely give the impression that the Rossoneri should really make use of their current six points gap wisely and try to finish the Championship race as soon as possible, considering the fact that they somehow lose two important players in consecutive matches.
Aside from their current comfortable six points gap against Napoli, another positive sightings for the Rossoneri in the absence of Ibrahimovic and Pato, is the good connection between Robinho and Antonio Cassano against Sampdoria. Moreover, Milan can also expect that their veteran striker, Fillipo Inzaghi would recover as soon as possible to cover up the lack of fire power that the team will be having in the next couple of games.
Supposedly if the reports about Milan planning to make an appeal for Ibrahimovic’s ban could be successful again, than the Swede would probably be back in the match against Bologna, which would be a pleasant news for the club. Despite having a comfortable lead, there’s still five more games left in the competition and anything could still happen, that’s why if the Rossoneri are seriously aiming to grab the Scudetto, the best way is keep going strong until they won it.
