Palladino joins Genoa injury list

Raffaele Palladino has become the latest Genoa player to be sidelined by injury.

The 26-year-old striker sustained a left thigh problem during Sunday's 1-0 victory over Catania and will be out of action for four weeks.

I Grifoni already have five players unavailable.

Frontmen Bosko Jankovic and Rodrigo Palacio and midfield duo Houssine Kharja and Miguel Veloso will only to return to training in mid-November, while forward Giuseppe Sculli is out until the new year.

It is bad news for coach Gian Piero Gasperini, whose team host Serie A champions Inter Milan on Friday before travelling to Palermo on 7 November.
