Natali out for up to six months
Bologna defender Cesare Natali could be ruled out for up to six months after damaging his knee ligaments.
Natali, 33, picked up the injury on Sunday in the 1-0 Serie A defeat against his former club Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
A statement issued on Bologna's official website confirmed the former Italy Under-21 international will require surgery to his right knee.
Natali signed a two-year contract with the Rossoblu after joining the club for his second spell from Fiorentina in the summer.
