Milik May Miss Season Due to ACL Injury

WARSAW, Poland. October 9 (PSN) – Arkadiusz Milik may miss out on the rest of his season due to a ACL injury that he picked up on Saturday on international duty.

The Polish international was injured in last night’s FIFA 2018 World Cup qualification clash with Denmark in Warsaw in the 40th minute.

He was later subbed off at the half and reports afterwards started flying that Milik has a serious injury on his hands.

The 22-year-old had torn the anterior cruiciate ligament of his left knee, prompting fears of a lengthy spell on the sidelines from anywhere to 4-6 months.

However, “Przeglad Sportowy” say that following tests, it appears that the Napoli striker’s injury is only a partial tear rather than a full one and could make a comeback around February if all goes well.

With Milik out of the national team camp, Adam Nawalka will have to opt for either Lukasz Teodorczyk or Kamil Wilczek as the second striker to play up top with Robert Lewandowski.

Poland play their second home game FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier against Armenia on Tuesday in Warsaw.

Meanwhile, back in Italy his club Napoli have reportedly started to seek an emergency replacement for Milik.
