Inter Milan midfielder Stefano Sensi has suffered a knee injury against Sampdoria that will keep him away from the action for almost a month as per the report in Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport

Despite leading the game by an excellent strike from Federico Dimarco. The Nerazzurri had to settle for a 2-2 draw against the Blucerchiati. Sensi entered the fray midway through the second half. But, he could not finish the game as he suffered a knee injury in a collision with Maya Yoshida. The 26-year-old was in tears and the injury looked serious at the first instance. 

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, following tests on Monday, showed that the Italy international suffered a distraction to the medial collateral ligament on his right knee. The playmaker will have to be sidelined for at least a month. 

The report further claims that the 26-year-old’s nature of the injury is the same as the fellow teammate Roberto Gagliardini picked up during the pre-season. The midfielder had to stay out of action for a month and Sensi will have to do the same. The former Sassuolo man can be returned to action as quickly as next month’s game against Lazio on 16th October. 

Inter midfielder Sensi suffers yet another injury:

Since joining from Sassuolo back in 2019 – for an initial loan move with an obligation to buy in the following summer for around €25 million – the midfielder has struggled to stay fit and string some regular game time under his belt. 

Sensi has managed only 13 starts in Serie A over the past couple of campaigns, scoring three goals and assisting two times for Inter. The midfielder has picked up several injuries during his time at Milan that forced him to miss more games than he has started for the reigning Serie A champions so far. 

Meanwhile, after a great start to the season with back to back victories in the first two games. The Nerazzurri suffered an unlikely stumbling block against Sampdoria. However, they will be looking to get back to the winning ways when they will encounter Bologna in the league on Saturday.
