AC Milan have confirmed that the star striker Robinho will be missing for up to a month due to an injury sustained in the leg. Robinho is one of the few recognised players at the club who can play as the striker. Another striker at the club, Alexandre Pato has also been missing from the first team action due to a lot of injuries. The Brazil international Alexandre Pato has suffered a lot of injury problems in his career, which means that the club were relying heavily upon the presence of Robinho. Now, his injury problem will be a major issue for the manager Massimiliano Allegri, who has already been criticised in various quarters for the poor start to the season made by the club.

AC Milan has suffered a serious dip in confidence amongst the fans, who have not even bought the season tickets. They have been extremely frustrated at club being extremely lackadaisical following the sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the summer. Then, along with many other high profile players have left the club in the summer. Robinho recently sustained an injury in a match against Sampdoria. After the initial scan results, the club has now confirmed that the player will be out for up to 4 weeks due to this injury.

Even though the international break will certainly help AC Milan offset the loss of not being without the Brazilian striker, they will still miss him for a number of crucial matches after the completion of the international break. “Robinho is suffering from first degree strain to the right thigh and is expected to be three to four weeks, save for complications,” said a statement on the official website of the club. Milan recently had a 3-1 win over Bologna, which was followed by the 1-0 defeat against Sampdoria.
