In a 4-0 thrashing of Atalanta at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Wednesday, February 28, Davide Frattesi entered the match, scored a goal and was withdrawn due to injury- all in ten minutes.

At the 61st-minute mark, Davide Frattesi entered the pitch for Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Ten minutes later, Alexis Sánchez put his free-kick on a plate for Frattesi to head home and increase Inter’s lead to four goals. During the celebrations, the 24-year-old is noticeably wincing and holding his inner thigh. Davy Klaassen is brought on and Frattesi walks off without any attention from Inter’s medical staff, exchanges words with Simone Inzaghi and resumes his place on the bench. During the full-time pleasantries, the midfielder is seen walking about on his own and without difficulty.

Following his substitution, it was revealed that Davide Frattesi had been “substituted in the 73rd minute against Atalanta due to muscle tightness in his right thigh”.

Today, SkySport Italy confirmed that Frattesi carried out personal training at Appiano Gentile and that his condition does not seem to worry Inter’s staff. This is so much the case that he has not even undergone any medical examinations to understand the extent of this potential injury. These examinations will only take place if Frattesi continues to feel discomfort but if not, he should regularly be available for Inter’s upcoming match against Genoa on Monday, March 4.
