Giacomo Bonaventura is out until the end of the season, the club confirmed.

Bonaventura injured himself during the match with Udinese on Sunday and today (Wednesday) the player was operated.

“Milan announces that Bonaventura today underwent medical surgery, performed by professor Sakari Orava, assisted by Milan’s medical director Rodolfo Tavana,” a statement on the club’s website reads.

“The surgery was necessary because of the complete detachment of his left adductor longus tendon from the bone and because of the partial detachment of the tendons of the internal and external oblique.

“The tendons have all been reattached to the bone. The surgeon Professor Orava is satisfied with the result of the surgery. The recovery time will be 4 months, unless complications arise.”

This is a big blow for coach Vincenzo Montella and in general of Milan’s ambition to make it to next season’s Europa League as Bonaventura was one of the most used and important players this season.
