On Saturday morning, full-back Luca Pellegrini underwent medical tests that confirmed a rupture in the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

The 18-year-old defender, a member of the club’s Primavera side, suffered the injury during Friday’s 1-0 friendly victory over FC Slovacko, on the final day of the club’s pre-season training camp in Pinzolo.

He will undergo reconstructive surgery which will be scheduled to take place in due course.
