Milan have struggled with injuries all season and it came as a shock when Davide Calabria was forced to sit out, seeing as he had managed to stay relatively healthy. And of course, it was a big blow for the team.
The right-back sustained a knee injury and medical checks determined that he needed minor surgery to solve the issue. The surgery took place today, as confirmed by the club on their website, and the outcome of it was successful.
“AC Milan announces that Davide Calabria underwent surgery to resolve the issue with the medial meniscus of his right knee.
“The keyhole surgery, carried out at the La Madonnina clinic by Doctor Roberto Pozzoni with the Club’s medical chief Doctor Stefano Mazzoni in attendance, was a complete success. Recovery time is estimated to be around 30 days,” the statement read.
Hopefully, Calabria will be back after the scheduled 30 days (or even better, earlier) as he has been a very important player for Milan this season. After the disappointing 2019/20 campaign, he has certainly re-established himself as an undisputed starter.
He could perhaps be back on the bench for the game against Genoa on the 18th of April, but that remains an optimistic guess. For the final games of the season, depending on the standings, his return could be a big boost.
