Daniele Bonera could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Daniele Bonera could be out for some time after sustaining a muscular injury before the start of Sunday's match with Treviso. The Italian international was warming up with his club side Parma when he felt the pain.
Bonera underwent a scan on Monday but the full extent of the injury will not be known until the end of the week when he will undergo new scans.
Parma's doctor revealed Massimo Manara confirmed that he could be out for a long time.
"After the new checks we will evaluate the time of his recovery, although we can already say it will be quite long".
Bonera's absence will be a major blow for coach Daniele Beretta at this early stage in the season.
