Robinho Hurt After Camera Collision

AC Milan striker Robinho had to be replaced with a knee injury after colliding with a tevelvision camera near the sidelines during the Italian team's friendly against local club Al Ahli.

The Brazil forward had to be helped off the pitch in the 85th minute and didn't return in Milan's 2-1 victory on Sunday.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says Robinho had "cuts on his knee and below his knee" but "hopefully wouldn't miss" the team's Serie A match against Cagliari on Jan. 6.

Allegri refused to criticize the placement of the camera by a Dubai sports station, saying "it is a problem" at football matches and "unfortunately the player didn't realize he was getting close to the camera."
