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.
