Krsticic to miss remainder of season for Sampdoria

Genoa, Italy (Sports Network) - Sampdoria midfielder Nenad Krsticic will play no further part in Sampdoria's season after tearing ligaments in his left ankle during Samp's 1-1 draw with Genoa on Sunday.

The 22-year-old left Sunday's contest after 17 minutes, and after undergoing tests, it was determined that he would miss the rest of the season.

"The midfielder will be observed over several days of immobility and, after re-evaluation from orthopaedic consultant professor Claudio Mazzola, we will decide whether to proceed with conservative treatment or with surgery," read a statement on the club's website.

Krsticic appeared in 25 Serie A matches this term for Sampdoria, which sits in 14th place, nine points clear of the relegation places.
