Milan goalkeeper Dida is doubtful for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Manchester United because of a shoulder injury.
The Brazilian picked up the injury when he collided with the post during a Serie A match at Messina.
“We’re worried,” Milan doctor Jean Pierre Meersseman told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We want to get a better understanding of the situation but we can’t yet because Dida’s shoulder is swollen.”
Meersseman confirmed that a shoulder injury like Dida’s normally requires eight to 10 days to heal – which would make the 33-year-old a major doubt for the match at Old Trafford on 24 April.
“Naturally, the goal is Manchester but there’s not much hope,” added Meersseman.
“On Thursday, if the swelling has gone down we will carry out more tests.”
