MN: Tomori requires arthroscopy on meniscus injury – how long he should be out

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s fears regarding Fikayo Tomori’s injury have been confirmed as he will have to undergo surgery on his knee, it is reported.

Fikayo Tomori was forced off during the first half of the Coppa Italia extra-time win over Genoa last night after feeling some discomfort in his knee, and it emerged after the game that an instrumental test would be needed to determine how severe the problem would be.

According to what is being reported by Anto Vitiello of MilanNews, Tomori suffered a medial meniscus injury to his left knee during last night’s game and it is one that requires arthroscopy surgery that will be performed in the afternoon. At the end of the operation, an official statement will be issued by the club.

Florenzi underwent the same surgery on a knee problem earlier this season and he ended up missing 7 games during the 35 days he was out.

    Just fantastic, we seriously need to look at improving medical and athletic aspects of our training, this all can’t be down to bad luck and has to be something in the training of the players. We read that milanello training pitch might have something to do with it after the surface was re-laid and the surface is now too hard, either way it needs looking into asap

      It was re-laid this season, but last season we had just as many injuries, so it’s not that or not just that.

    Take ur time, no need to hurry,we are losing CB one by one but u have plenty of time,look out is there any loan options available,or u can just put Giroud on CB,we are in no need.
    And while u doing that go pay 6 milions for pelegri,a player you don’t even need and send him to torino on loan ,amazing job!!!!

    Maldini and Masara, please get a quality Central Defender immediatetly. We have Juventus and Inter in the next 2 games after Spezia.

    We need a very competitive team, just concentrate on getting a CD urgently.

    In the summer, priorities are a CAM who is very creative, a productive RW and a prolific CF, after getting Belloti on a BOSMAN.

    Then, we are good to go

    I have no words. This is a terrible blow for us and may seriously hinder our Scudetto aspirations. We need to really fully reassess our medical and training practices, because what we have been witnessing for the last few years cannot be merely down to a bad luck.

    1. Vero Rossonero says:

      Giorgi, I agree about our medical dept. but ACL, MCL and meniscus injuries are not really preventable. There are some strengthening exercises the one can do to help stabilize joints, but really nothing you can do if you’re running and twist the wrong way or someone tackles you in such a way that an ankle or knee twists and tears a ligament. Muscle injuries are another story, and that’s where good training can help.

    I’m speechless 😒

  6. Moon says:

    He should be out four or six weeks. Wanna cry.

  7. Paul says:

    It is obviously that we are not competing with other’s teams but injuries.
    Injuries is our main rivals.
