Italian Media Detail Milan Skriniar Back Injury As Inter Milan Feel Slovakian National Team Doctor Diagnosis As “Too Alarmist”
Inter consider the diagnosis of defender Milan Skriniar’s back injury by a Slovakian national team doctor is “too alarmist” and that the real reasons for the player’s discomfort are less serious than the doctor had indicated.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the reason for the 28-year-old’s discomfort has been pressure on a nerve in his back from a disc rather than damage to an intervertertebral disc as suggested by the Slovakia team doctor.
Skriniar has missed out on Inter’s last four matches in Serie A with a back injury, and will also not be a part of the Slovakian national team squad during the break.
Slovakia team doctor Zsolt Fegyveres stated to the media that the Nerazzurri defender is dealing with damage to an intervertebral disc, a potentially serious diagnosis which would leave the timeline for the player’s return up in the air.
However, according to the Gazzetta, the Nerazzurri feel that this diagnosis makes the problem sound worse than it is.
The newspaper reports that whilst Inter will take no risks with Skriniar’s fitness, there is an expectation that he could be back in time for the team’s Coppa Italia semifinal first leg against Juventus next month.
