Naples: Napoli have confirmed that Lorenzo Insigne has suffered ‘tendon damage to the adductor longus muscle’ in his left thigh and will be monitored over the coming days.
Insigne sustained injury during the club’s clash against Lazio on Sunday, in the recently-concluded Serie A season.
“Lorenzo Insigne has undergone tests that have confirmed that he has suffered tendon damage to the adductor longus muscle in his left thigh, in addition to bone bruising. The player sustained the injury during the match against Lazio on Saturday. Insigne will be closely monitored over the coming days,” the club said in a statement.
