MilanNews.it are reporting that Gianluigi Donnarumma picked up an ankle injury in the weekend fixture against Fiorentina when he was substituted off. The injury made way for the debut of Asmir Begovic who joined in the January transfer window as Pepe Reina swapped to the Premier League. The goalkeeper has ankle trauma and will be further assessed this week.

The goalkeeper has been integral over the past few weeks maintaining a number of key clean sheets. He will be sorely missed in a week or so in the Coppa Italia against Juventus if he does not recover in time. Stefano Pioli noted after the game that the injury is likely a sprain.
