Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti will miss the rest of the season because of a right knee injury, the French club said Tuesday.
Verratti picked up the injury during training last week and did not play in PSG’s 1-1 draw with Rennes on Sunday in the French league.
The Italian will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks, possibly forcing him to also miss the European Championship.
