AC Milan have suffered another injury setback with the news star striker Alexandre Pato is facing six weeks on the sidelines.
The Rossoneri were rocked on Thursday with the news striker Filippo Inzaghi's season was effectively over due to damaged cruciate knee ligaments.
And they have now been dealt another severe blow after scans revealed Pato is suffering from a muscular problem in his left thigh which is likely to keep him out until January.
Both players sustained their injuries during Milan's 3-1 win over Palermo at the San Siro on Wednesday and will miss Sunday's Serie A derby against Inter.
