Milan defender Alex will likely miss his side’s upcoming derby against Inter on the weekend after picking up another muscular injury to his right thigh in training in midweek. The former Paris Saint-Germain defender will also miss his team’s games against Genoa and Udinese.
The club’s official statement is as follows:
“AC Milan would like to report that Alex has picked up an injury in training to his right thigh yesterday afternoon. This muscular injury will sideline for the derby against Inter.”
This latest injury means that Pippo Inzaghi will once again have to rely on the partnership of Cristian Zapata and Philippe Mexes in defense who played well together prior the the international break. Unfortunately, Alex will have to be satisfied by watching on from the sidelines once more due to this injury. Going into tomorrow’s game the reported back four sees Adil Rami slide in at right back while Matteo De Sciglio will feature at left back.
