Milan furlough for Pirlo

AC Milan playmaker Andrea Pirlo is set to be out of action for up to two months after an ultrasound scan revealed that an injury suffered in training on Tuesday was a tear to the muscle in the 29-year-old's right thigh.

The Italian international missed Thursday's 3-1 home win against FC Zurich and will also miss the second leg of the UEFA Cup first round tie on 2 October.

He will also be unavailable for the first part of the group stage, should Milan make it, but the Milan giants received better news with Gennaro Gattuso now sufficiently recovered from a hand injury to play in Sunday's home game against Lazio.

The Rossoneri started their Serie A campaign with defeats against Bologna and Genoa.
