Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho will be out of action for at least a month after suffering a stress fracture to his leg in the club's Europa League match.

The Brazilian playmaker was withdrawn in the first half of the Nerazzurri's 1-0 victory over Partizan Belgrade, with medical tests confirming the extent of the injury.

A statement on inter.it said: "Following a collision with (Milos) Ostojic in the 30th minute of yesterday's encounter, Philippe Coutinho underwent tests which revealed a stress fracture to his tibia."

The 20-year-old, signed from Vasco De Gama in 2010, had been enjoying an extended run in the Beneamata first team given the absence of injured Holland international Wesley Sneijder.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
