Milan, Feb 21: Mario Balotelli will be sidelined for at least 10 days after he suffered a shoulder injury in AC Milan’s Champions League’s 0-1 loss to Atletico Madrid at home Wednesday.

Balotelli was clutching his shoulder after a nasty fall and, according to an AC Milan club statement Thursday, medical check showed that he suffered no lesions but still needs at least 10 days if there are no complications, reports Xinhua.

Mattia de Sciglio needs more tests to make sure of his ankle injury. The Milan defender limped off following Emiliano Insua’s tackle and tests confirmed a sprain and bruising of the left ankle.

The prognosis will be made after more evaluations over the next few days. IANS
