Genoa lose Jorquera for month
Genoa midfielder Cristobal Jorquera faces a month on the sidelines with a thigh strain.
The Chile international lasted just nine minutes of Il Grifone's 1-0 defeat at Siena on Sunday, and medical tests have now confirmed the extent of the damage.
A statement on the club's website read: "The club can confirm that midfielder Cristobal Jorquera underwent a medical examination and a magnetic scan at the Baluardo Institute following the injury he suffered at Siena. The scan confirmed a second-grade lesion to his right thigh muscle."
Santiago-born Jorquera, who can also play as a second striker, signed a four-year contract with Genoa in 2011 after leaving hometown club Colo Colo.
