Menez suffers adductor injury

Milan have revealed that winger Jeremy Menez is set for tests on an injury to his right adductor muscle.

Menez, who joined Milan from Paris Saint-Germain in June, has made a strong start to his career at San Siro, scoring three goals in six Serie A games.

However, the 27-year-old could be set for a spell on the sidelines in what would be a blow to Milan’s hopes of continuing their relatively impressive early season form under Filippo Inzaghi.

A statement on Milan’s official website read: “AC Milan would like to communicate that Jeremy Menez is suffering from a problem to his right adductor muscle. The player will undergo further tests over the next few days.”

With Milan’s next fixture at Verona a week on Sunday, Inzaghi will hope that Menez has enough time to recover from the problem.

The 18-time Italian champions sit fifth in Serie A, having taken 11 points from their first six games.
