AC Milan lose Nesta for Napoli clash

AC Milan defender Alessandro Nesta has been ruled out of Sunday's Serie A clash with Napoli with a muscle strain, his club said on their website. 

The 35-year-old centre back was absent as the Milan players were put through their paces in Saturday's final training session in sub-zero temperatures at the club's Milanello training complex. 

The injury is a blow for coach Massimiliano Allegri whose team are looking to rebound from a 2-0 defeat to Lazio in midweek. 

Milan are currently second in Serie A, a point behind Juventus who have a game in hand.
