Official: Milan confirm Tomori will be out for a month following successful surgery

By Isak Möller -

Fikayo Tomori sustained an injury in AC Milan’s clash against Genoa last night and was forced to leave the pitch. Bad news for the Rossoneri, who will be without the defender for about a month. 

This was announced by the club on their official website this evening. Tomori underwent a key-hole surgery earlier today and the initial checks suggest that it should take around a month for the Englishman to return.

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

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 Center) 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 thirty days,” the statement read.

It comes at the worst possible time for Milan as they already have Simon Kjaer and Alessio Romagnoli out of action. The latter should soon return as he tested positive for Covid-19 last week, but the situation isn’t ideal.

By the looks of it, Matteo Gabbia and Pierre Kalulu will be the starting centre-backs once again as Milan will face Spezia on Monday. Of course, Stefano Pioli is hoping that Romagnoli will be back for the Juve and Inter clashes.

  3. Stam says:

    Yeah now its bad

    Coppa Italia would be fine, with Tomori out for at least 4 games we may be out of scudetto as well

    what’s with this stupid genoa, first they finished Kjaer for us, Now it’s Tomori. He shld never have played in the coppa, but the other defenders too needed a rest & rotation, guess it’s time for Gabbia & Kalulu to show their worth & strenght for the team again, forza milan

    always a shit storm for us, Tonali was the glue that kept the team intact, he was our/my “cane pazzo” ……. time for the rest of the team to step up, when is Kessie due to return ? This year is something special and I think we will weather this storm. Theo “Il Gazzella” will lead us. Forza Milan
