The Chilean suffered a muscle injury in the game against Bayer Leverkusen and Antonio Conte confirmed that he will be absent from the Europa League semi-final.
The bad news came for Inter de Milan in the preview of the crash before Shakhtar Donetsk for the semifinal of the Europa League. The Nerazzurri coach, Antonio Conte, assured that Alexis Sanchez will not be available for the match to be played in Düsseldorf.
After suffering in the duel against Bayer Leverkusen, the Italian team revealed the muscle injury in the Chilean forward’s right leg. The player even stayed on the field of play, but this meant that he could not be available for the confrontation against the Ukrainians.
“For much of the season, Alexis has not been available due to injury and now we are realizing what kind of weapon I lost. Not having this player, after he had returned to important levels, is something that I feel a lot”, the technician sentenced to the media.
On the other hand, Conte spoke about the importance of the South American in his scheme. “I am left without a fundamental element, either from the beginning or to enter the second half. The two forwards will have to sacrifice. Surely Alexis would have helped us,” he closed.
