Inter Milan striker Marcus Thuram has not suffered any injury beyond cramp against Benfica and will be available to face Bologna.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the signs from training today have been positive despite a minor injury scare.
Thuram came off the pitch during the second half of yesterday evening’s Champions League group stage match against Benfica.
The Frenchman had scored the match’s only goal earlier on in the half to cap off another strong performance.
But Thuram went down in some discomfort later, and indicated to the bench that he needed to come off. Alexis Sanchez came onto the pitch to replace the 26-year-old.
This naturally led to some worries that there could be an injury to Thuram.
That would be just about the last thing that Inter would want to deal with.
Marko Arnautovic is already out for an extended period with a thigh strain. Therefore, if Thuram were to miss any matches, it would leave Inter with just two senior forwards fit and available.
Inter Striker Marcus Thuram Avoids Injury – Just Cramp, Available Vs Bologna
After yesterday’s match, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi indicated that there were few worried from the club’s medical staff regarding Thuram’s condition.
The striker was feeling some soreness in his calf. But it didn’t appear to be anything too serious.
However, there was a need to see and see how Thuram fared in training today.
And according to FCIN, there do not appear to be any lingering issues for the Frenchman.
The outlet reports that Thuram was able to complete a full training session as normal today.
Therefore, there is no reason to think that the former Borussia Monchengladbach striker will not be available to face Bologna over the weekend.
Meanwhile, FCIN also reported that midfielders Davide Frattesi and Stefano Sensi continued to train individually today.
