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The Brazilian playmaker was withdrawn in the first half of the Nerazzurri's 1-0 victory over Partizan Belgrade, with medical tests confirming the extent of the injury.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

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
