AC Milan have confirmed that their versatile full-back Alessandro Florenzi will be out for a month after the player underwent minor surgery on his knee which has already been successful.
Player injury problems still haven’t stopped bothering AC Milan at the start of this season after they were confirmed to be missing another one of their retainers for about a month. The player who will not be able to help Stefano Pioli’s team in that time is their new signing on loan from AS Roma, Alessandro Florenzi.
The condition of the player was already known after the match from Milan against Atletico in the Champions League but at that time he was only predicted to miss the match against Atalanta this weekend. However, based on official confirmation from the Rossoneri via the club’s official website, it is now confirmed that the Italian national team player must miss a few more matches besides facing La Dea.
Milan gave a statement that Florenzi had successfully undergone athroscopic surgery to treat problems in his left knee. The operation was carried out by doctor Pier Paoo Mariani and has been a success so now the player has to start a recovery period which will last for 30 days.
The international break is actually quite lucky for Milan because Florenzi will not miss too many matches in their future. In addition, several players who are still undergoing recovery such as Rade Krunic, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Zlatan Ibrahimovic also have the potential to return to action after the international break in early October.
Regarding Florenzi himself, the Rossoneri certainly hope that after the operation the player will be able to play more comfortably and find his best form with Pioli’s team. So far the performance of the 30-year-old has not been optimal, but the problem with his knee could be one of the main reasons for his lack of stability.
Florenzi was brought by the Red and Black squad on loan and a purchase option in the transfer window last summer. The player became an option for Milan after they failed to bring back Diogo Dalot from Manchester United.
