Udinese striker Muriel out with thigh injury
UDINE, Italy (AP) — Udinese’s Colombia striker Luis Muriel is likely be out of action for several weeks with a thigh injury.
The 23-year-old Muriel injured his right thigh during a friendly against Red Star Belgrade at the weekend.
On Tuesday, Udinese confirmed the injury is worse than first feared.
No definitive recovery time has been given, but the club adds that the tests will be repeated in 8-10 days to get a more precise prognosis once the inflammation has gone down.
Udinese has slipped to eighth in the Serie A standings after just one win in its past six matches.
