Amir Rrahmani will miss Napoli’s chance to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League against Ajax after picking up a thigh injury, the Serie A club said on Tuesday.
Napoli in a statement said Kosovo captain Rrahmani had injured a tendon in his left thigh and that he had “begun the recovery process”.
Napoli did not say how long centre-back Rrahmani — an ever-present for coach Luciano Spalletti so far this season — would be out for but Italian media reported that the 28-year-old would be sidelined for at least three weeks.
That would keep him out for the rest of Napoli’s Champions League Group A campaign, which has begun with three straight wins.
Napoli will qualify for the knockout stages with two games to spare on Wednesday should they beat Ajax in Naples.
