Massimo Ambrosini: Sprained his right ankle

Rossoneri captain Ambrosini failed to return after half-time in the 1-0 defeat at Juventus on Sunday, with Abbiati lasting only 15 minutes before being replaced by Marco Amelia, who later conceded Arturo Vidal's match-winning penalty.

A statement on the club's official website read: "AC Milan would like to communicate that Massimo Ambrosini sprained his right ankle during the match against Juventus and has suffered some ligament damage.

"Christian Abbiati, meanwhile, has strained his right calf. Both will have a better idea of how long their recovery time will be further into the week."

The duo, along with injured midfielder Nigel De Jong and suspended defender Cristian Zapata, will definitely miss Sunday's visit of Catania.

Milan are currently third in the Serie A table, seven points behind Napoli and one point above Fiorentina in the race for a Champions League place.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.

aha, The Fine? That will really hurt. Thats like me biting someone in my place of work and getting fined 78p. I would round it up to 80p because thats how much a packet of Quavers or a Topic are in the machine. The bans are heavy though, and rightly so.
