Inter Milan have confirmed that forward Joaquin Correa has suffered a calf injury in his right leg.
The club’s official site update that the 28-year-old has suffered a strain to the soleus muscle in his right leg during the team’s Coppa Italia final win over Fiorentina, as confirmed by medical tests with the club’s doctors.
Correa had come off the bench during the second half of Inter’s Coppa Italia final win over Fiorentina on Wedneday. The ex-Lazio man replaced fellow Argentine Lautaro Martinez.
According to the Nerazzurri’s official update, however, Correa felt some pain in his leg in the final few minutes of the match.
This prompted tests with the club’s medical staff. Unfortunately for Correa and for Inter, the tests revealed a muscle strain in the soleus muscle of the forward’s right leg.
Another Injury Setback For Joaquin Correa At Inter Milan
Correa had looked set to start for Inter tomorrow against Atalanta, according to reports.
However, with confirmation of another injury for the 28-year-old, that obviously appears very unlikely now.
Injuries have been a theme for Correa ever since he joined Inter from Lazio in the summer of 2021.
The Argentine has made a total of 76 appearances for the Nerazzurri, scoring ten goals in the process.
However, those numbers don’t tell the whole stories.
The Argentine has not had any injuries which have caused him to miss a period of several months. However, several niggling muscle problems have caused him to be sidelined.
Moreover, the sense is that Correa has never really had the chance to build up a head of steam due to injury disruptions.
Whilst there have been one or two glimpses of Correa’s Biancocelesti form, these have been few and far between. Momentum has proven elusive for a player who’s often lacked match-sharpness when he’s played.
Reports suggest that Correa will in all likelihood leave Inter this summer, possibly on loan.
