Most Interisti agree that Mauro Icardi was not on his ‘A’ game in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Torino at the San Siro.

Now, there might be a reason why.

Inter Milan released a statement earlier Tuesday confirming the Argentinian suffered a “knock” against Torino.

While the injury was not enough to pull Icardi from the starting 11 Sunday, it was enough for to remove him from Argentina’s matches with Russia and Nigeria during the international break.

The club also confirmed Icardi was examined Tuesday morning at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano.

“After taking a knock during Sunday’s game against Torino, tests results has since shown that the Nerazzurri attacker has suffered no significant injury, although there is bruising and inflammation around his right knee,” the club said via its website. “Before retuning to Luciano Spalletti’s squad, Icardi will now complete four to five days of physiotherapy and an individual training programme [sic].”

Icardi has 11 goals in the first 12 games of the season, but was held scoreless against Torino Sunday.

Inter Milan return to action after the international break on Nov. 19 when they will host Atalanta.
