Miroslav Klose: Suffered knee injury in defeat to Genoa

The Germany international has scored 10 goals in Serie A this season but was replaced at half-time during Sunday's 3-2 defeat to Genoa and, after visiting German specialist Professor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, has been advised the injury will mean a lengthy lay-off.

"The player will return to Italy either tomorrow or on Wednesday and start the protocol prescribed by the German specialist. The estimated recovery time is about seven to eight weeks."
