Italian giants AC Milan will be without the services of Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze for the games against arch-rivals Juventus in the Italian Series A and Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
The forward sustained the hamstring injury while on international duty with the Super Eagles who had friendly games against Saudi Arabia (2-2) and Mozambique (3-2). The 24-year-old was ruled out for the game against Mozambique.
According to Milan, the player has already returned but will not be fit enough to face Juventus on Sunday at the San Siro.
“Samuel Chukwueze is already back at Milanello: the Nigerian suffered a left hamstring injury while away on international duty, thus ruling him out of his country’s match against Mozambique. The rest of the Rossoneri’s internationals will return in the next 48 hours.”
The duration of his injury is yet to be ascertained by the club but medically, a player should recover from a mild hamstring injury in about two to three weeks.
