Andrea Conti has gone under the knife today after sustaining injury on July 21.

Conti left the pitch after 11 minutes in the game against Sassuolo earlier this month and today it was revealed that he had to undergo knee surgery to fix the issue.

“Milan announces that Conti, following persistent pain due to the trauma suffered to his left knee during Sassuolo v Milan, has today undergone keyhole surgery to resolve the issue to his medial meniscus.

“The procedure was carried out by Prof. Pier Paolo Mariani, with the Club’s doctor, Mario Brozzi, overseeing,” a statement on the Diavolo reads on Friday.

The 26-year-old right back has a history of long-term injuries and this is his third knee surgery in three years. However, this time it seems that the recovery times will be much shorter: “It was just a small routine operation, it went well and on August 24 I’ll be with my teammates ready to start a new season with Milan,” Andrea wrote on his Instagram page.

Hopefully he will soon be back in training because him allways getting injured isnt really durable in the length if not allready. He is 26 year old so by now he cant really be considered a young talent anylonger and maybe its time to take our losses in regard of the player but if he is out for too long it might even affect our transfers if it was in the plans to sell him in the upcomming window. Mussachio was apparently destined to be sold when the transfer window re-opens but i doubt he will leave us before january… Read more »

man, i remember gullit having similar problems with his meniscus. like i said, knee injuries tend to mess players up. owen, gullit, ronaldo, shearer, kaka etc came back but they didnt come back all the way; they never regained their peak performances. sammer even had to quit football after he just won ballon d’or san marco style.
oh well, get well soon conti. come back stronger

Time for Milan and Conti to part ways. Unfortunately, despite all his injuries he has never lived up to the hype.

Partly because he was mostly used in a back 3 as a wingback at Atalanta and not as a full back in a a back 4 at Milan. His defending is horrible and I really don’t see any improvement or upside in keeping him.

Conti is definitely a player we should offload along with Musacchio, Rodriguez, Biglia, Laxalt and Krunić.

Best of luck with the recovery.
But Biglia and Conti signings were not smart.
Kessie is brilliant when he doesn’t try to be Messi. Hope he is not sold to EPL next season.

The key is evolution, not revolution.
