Niang set for a left ankle surgery on Friday, Milan hope to have him back for the Coppa Italia final


M’Baye Niang is not going to be returning before May following the car crash but the defender Rodrigo Ely will undergo a rehabilitation programme over the next two weeks.

Niang was involved in a car accident last weekend and yesterday (Monday) he went to see a specialist.

AC Milan communicates that M’Baye Niang underwent a specialized visit with Professor Niek Van Dijk in Amsterdam who established that a ligament tear of the left ankle will require surgery. The operation will be performed by Professor Van Dijk on Friday,” a statement read.

There is hope to have Niang back for the Coppa Italia final although the more likely scenario is that he’ll be out until the next season. It’s a huge blow for Milan and Sinisa Mihajlovic as Carlos Bacca is in a desperate need for a partner and Mario Balotelli, Jeremy Menez & Luiz Adriano are all not 100%.

Milan also gave an update on Rodrigo Ely who broke his fifth metatarsal in his left foot. “Professor Van Dijk also carried out a clinical and radiographic check-up on Rodrigo Ely. The player will undergo a rehabilitation programme over the next two weeks that will return him to playing fitness. “

The 21-year-old Niang was involved in 17 matches for Milan this season while scoring 5 goals. Ely meanwhile looked promising in pre-season but only played 4 matches this term.
