Alessandro Florenzi has gone under the knife and will be out for a long time.
It’s been several days since Florenzi suffered his injury but only today (Thursday), the player underwent surgery and his recovery time was confirmed.
A statement on the website of the official Rossoneri reads:
“Milan can confirm that Alessandro Florenzi, during the game against Sassuolo, suffered a severe injury to the biceps femoris of his left hamstring, which required surgery. The operation was conducted this morning by Professor Lasse Lempainen in Finland, with Milan club doctor, Dr Stefano Mazzoni, in attendance.
“The surgery was successful and Alessandro will return to Italy tomorrow to begin the rehabilitation process. He is estimated to make a full recovery in five months.”
