Chievo veteran Sergio Pellissier is out of Friday’s match against Roma and could be sidelined for several weeks with a thigh strain.
The 39-year-old limped off during the first half of Chievo’s 2-2 draw with Empoli on Saturday.
A statement released by the club this evening confirms he has been diagnosed with a muscular lesion to the femoral bicep in the right leg.
Pellissier has already begun treatment and “will be evaluated day by day” with Chievo medical staff.
A muscular lesion usually requires at least a couple of weeks out, but the only certainty right now is that Pellissier will miss Friday’s Serie A encounter with Roma.
