March, 29, twisted his right knee during the second half of Brighton’s 2-1 loss to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last Saturday.
The Brighton star was clearly in pain as he hit the turf and received lengthy treatment before he was stretchered of. It was a double blow for Brighton on the day as experienced striker Danny Welbeck also pulled up in the first half with a hamstring issue.
Albion head coach Roberto De Zerbi, speaking today ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash with Ajax at the Amex Stadium, said: “Unfortunately, it’s a very tough injury [for March]. We lose him for a long period and [Danny] Welbeck the same.
"Welbeck is in the training ground everyday. Solly I’ve not seen after the Manchester City game but we love him and we will be very close with him to support him everyday. We have to accept that football is like this and injury can happen.
"It’s not my job to inform you about the injury, I know we’ve lost an important player for a long time but I don’t want to cry because sometimes managers do when they lose players.
"We have to move on and work out there, to find a different solution. We have to work harder and not speak too much about the injury as you just have to accept it.”
