Inter defender Milan Skriniar is set to be out for around a month and a half with the muscle injury that he picked up on international duty with the Slovak national team.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the 27-year-old will take around a month and a half to recover from the problem that he sustained during Slovakia’s 1-0 Nations League loss to Kazakhstan.

Skriniar had to come off the pitch late on during the first half of the Slovak national team’s clash with Kazakhstan, and he looked to be in some pain and was even in tears on the pitch.

The problem is nothing more serious than a muscle injury, but it will still take over a month for the defender to recover, although there is no rush given that there is no football to be played immediately on the horizon.

Meanwhile, striker Edin Dzeko only has a bruise from Bosnia and Herzgovina’s match against Romania.
