AC Milan's Ghana international midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng will be sidelined for up to two weeks after undergoing surgery on a fractured bone in his right hand.
Boateng suffered the injury in Milan's 3-1 win away to Bologna, when team-mate Giampaolo Pazzini scored a hat-trick, and will be sidelined for a fortnight according to ANSA.
Dr Carlo Grandis, who performed the operation, said the surgery went well and that 'unless there are complications, Boateng can play again within 15 days'.
Milan, however, will be without midfielder Riccardo Montolivo for up to three weeks after he pulled a thigh muscle in the same match.
The south stand of Roma's Stadio Olimpico will be closed to supporters for one Serie A game after several fans ignored warnings against racially abusing AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
