Liverpool's Borini sidelined for 3 months
Borini sustained the injury in the Reds' 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United on September 23 and "aggravated the problem resulting in a fracture" when on international duty with Italy's Under-21 team ahead of their game against Sweden on Friday.
"Typically, an injury of this nature requires a three-month rehabilitation period," said the club in a statement posted on their website.
The 21-year-old Borini joined Liverpool from Roma in the summer and has scored just once in 11 appearances. (Xinhua-ANI)
