Livorno's David Balleri is not as badly injured as first feared.
Livorno have been boosted by the news that David Balleri is not as badly injured as first feared.
The defender was forced off during the weekend clash with Internazionale following a bad challenge from Pierre Wome.
Reports at first suggested that Balleri's season could be over with possible knee ligament damage feared.
However, scans have revealed that the knee is only strained and so surgery is not needed - meaning a comeback within four weeks is likely.
