Simon Kjær has gone under the knife today and he will be back next season.
Just earlier this week, Kjær learned that his finished 18th in the 2021 Ballon d’Or ranking, getting much-deserved recognition for his best year ever.
However, today, the Dane was under the knife, undergoing surgery following the injury he picked up in the 3rd minute of Wednesday’s Genoa-Milan game.
“Milan confirms that Simon Kjær underwent arthroscopic surgery today to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament and reinsert the medial collateral ligament in his left knee,” a statement on the website of the Rossoneri reads on Friday evening.
“The operation, which was carried out at the Casa di Cura La Madonnina clinic, was a perfect success, with Dr. Roberto Pozzoni performing it with the help of the CTS (Centro di Traumatologia dello Sport – Sports Traumatology Centre) team from the Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute in the presence of Club doctor Stefano Mazzoni.
“Kjær is doing well and is eager to begin the rehabilitation process immediately. He’s expected to be out for six months.”
