News has just come in about the injury problem that Sime Vrsaljko has been dealing with. The Croatian defender suffers from a gonalgia in his left knee as a consequence of recent trauma that was suffered during his game for Croatia against Spain.
He has had this problem previously during the World Cup in Russia during the quarter finals against the hosts. This is an osteocartilaginous inflammation and his condition will be evaluated day by day. The problem resides in his bone or the cartilage in his knee and he will need to be eased into training to ensure that he recovers properly and to avoid another repeat situation. It is a very rocky start for Vrsaljko considering the number of injuries he has been dealing with.
Therefore it is confirmed that he will miss Inter’s Champions League game against Tottenham on Tuesday and will need to be assessed before their next league match against Sampdoria on Saturday.
