Fikayo Tomori is out for a month after the injury he sustained last night.

Tomori had to leave the pitch after quarter pf a match last night after feeling “something strange” in his knee.

Today, the severity of the injury was made clear and the Englishman had to go under the knife to fix the issue.

“Milan can confirm that Fikayo Tomori underwent key-hole surgery on his left knee to repair the medial meniscus injury that occurred yesterday,” a statement reads.

“The operation, carried out at the La Madonnina Clinic, was a success. It was performed by Dr. Roberto Pozzoni with the help of the CTS (Sports Traumatology Centre) team at Galeazzi in the presence of the Club’s Health Manager, Stefano Mazzoni. Fikayo is well and will start his rehabilitation immediately. Recovery time is estimated to be 30 days.

Fik’s injury means that Milan currently have only 2 available center backs: Matteo Gabbia and Pierre Kalulu, as Alessio Romagnoli is still battling COVID. The club is on the market for a new defender.

This one is directly Pioli’s fault. Stupid. Why on earth play the first team in the cup! Against fucking Genoa. Why rush him back?

Do not worry brother..For the sake of our beloved Milan, I hope people that are down voting you will not later bite their fingers for this Pioli”s stupidity. Tomori shouldn’t have been used for that Genoa match unless it was a final of coppa Italia. Now our two key defenders are injured.Our management are still hesitant about splashing money on a centre back.

You are correct and why rushing him back?
this is a game for the two fringe defenders Kalulu and Gabbi but Pioli being average coach he’s won’t think
