Official: Milan defender Andrea Conti undergoes surgery on knee injury

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have announced that defender Andrea Conti has undergone surgery to remedy a knee problem he recently picked up.

Conti went off during the first half of the 2-1 win over Sassuolo last week, and the club have announced that following the persistence of painful symptoms after the trauma sustained, he has undergone surgery.

To be more precise, he underwent an arthroscopic revision and regularisation of the medial meniscus of his left knee. We have no idea what that means either.

The procedure was performed by Prof. Pier Paolo Mariani in the presence of the Rossoneri team doctor Mario Brozzi.

It is the latest setback for a player who has had nothing but injury trouble since he arrived from Atalanta in 2017. His three-year spell has included a cruciate ligament injury in 2017 and then knee surgery in 2018.

What this means for the player’s long-term future remains to be seen, while it could boost Davide Calabria’s chances of staying.
