Inter lose Stankovic to injury
Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic is facing a spell on the sidelines with a thigh strain.
The 32-year-old Serbia international suffered the injury during Saturday's 2-1 Serie A victory over Lazio at the San Siro.
A statement read: "The serious nature of the injury Dejan Stankovic picked up on Saturday, April 23 in the second half of Inter v Lazio was confirmed by the tests programmed by professor Franco Combi, chief of medical staff at FC Internazionale: a second-degree strain in the muscles of his left thigh.
"The midfielder underwent his first physiotherapy session [on Tuesday], while the rest of the squad at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti resumed training after two days off.''
Reports in Italy suggest he could be sidelined for around three weeks, which would mean he could be back in contention for the final league game of the season against Catania on May 22 and the Coppa Italia final the following week should Inter progress.
