MILAN - AC Milan midfielder Andrea Pirlo
has been ruled out for around four weeks because of a thigh
strain, the Serie A leaders said in a statement on Sunday.
Pirlo was injured during the first half of Milan's 1-0 home
defeat by AS Roma on Saturday, the Rossoneri struggling to
control the game and conceding the goal after he went off.
Serie A now has a mid-season break until January 6 and Pirlo
will travel with the squad for warm weather training in Dubai
later this month.
Milan are trying to sign Antonio Cassano from Sampdoria in
time for their next game at Cagliari and the loss of Pirlo's
creativity makes the move even more of a priority.
