MN: Pobega’s recovery takes another step forward with return to the field

By Oliver Fisher -

Tommaso Pobega has taken another step forward in his recovery and he could soon be back available to head coach Stefano Pioli, according to a report.

Pobega was given a rare start during a 3-0 win against Monza at San Siro at December and he played on the left of a three-man defence, but he lasted less than 30 minutes before pulling up with a painful looking hip problem.

It became obvious that it was more than just a muscle strain, and then the club announced that Pobega had undergone an operation – carried out by Surgeon Lasse Lempainen and observed by AC Milan Club doctor Dario Donato – to repair a tendon issue in his hip.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Pobega actually returned to the field today to do some individual work with a member of the Milan coaching staff, marking another step forward in his recovery process.

In the next few days, presumably after the match against Fiorentina (but there is not yet a completely defined timing), the former Torino loanee should gradually return to working in a group with the rest of his team-mates.

After the operation the expected recovery time was four months, so it is very probably that he will trim some time off that.
