Laudrup said: "Chico is very doubtful, he is still in lot of pain. I knew when it happened against Liverpool it was very serious.
"Normally when you have a dead leg, you get up and play on but then it is sore for three or four days.
"So when Chico had to come off, I knew he was hurt, he wants to play every minute of every game. It was looking like eight or 10 days out so he is very doubtful for this weekend.
"There is no point risking him for one game if he is not right, because we have lots of games coming up over the next few months."
