Milan Crisis Intensifies As Pirlo Suffers Injury Blow

Milan have been dealt another major blow in midfield after Andrea Pirlo went down with a muscular injury during Tuesday morning’s training session.The Rossoneri are already without Gennaro Gattuso and it is highly likely that Pirlo will be ruled out from Milan’s UEFA Cup clash with Zurich on Thursday night. The extent of the player’s injury is not yet known but the club have released a statement confirming he will under go further examinations on Friday morning. "Milan announces that Andrea Pirlo sustained an injury to his right leg this morning and he will be examined further on Friday," read a statement on the club’s official website. Although it is not known how long Pirlo will be out, reports in Italy suggest it will be several weeks. Carlo Ancelotti did not need this latest set-back given all the recent problems at the club. Emerson or Cardacio are likely to come in for the injured star. Milan will be hoping to progress against Zurich. Any slip up could signal the end of Ancelotti’s days in charge. The club cannot afford to lose or they will be eliminated from the competition.
