Soccer-Nainggolan faces lengthy absence after suffering sprained ankle

MILAN, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Inter Milan have suggested that midfielder Radja Nainggolan could be out for several weeks, starting with Wednesday’s Champions League match at Barcelona, after he suffered a sprained ankle during the derby against AC Milan on Sunday.

The combative 30-year-old, Inter’s prize signing in the close season when he joined the club for 38 million euros ($44 million) from AS Roma, was injured during the first half in a challenge by Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia.

“The results confirmed that he has sprained his left ankle. The midfielder’s condition will be reassessed in the coming weeks,” said Inter in a statement. ($1 = 0.8720 euros) (Writing by Brian Homewood, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
