Chievo striker Sergio Pellissier will undergo surgery next week after suffering “a serious ankle injury.”
The veteran was taking part in today’s training session when he suffered damage to the ligament in his left ankle.
“Tomorrow the captain will undergo further tests to set the date of probable surgery,” read a statement.
Pellissier turned 34 only two weeks ago and has struggled with injuries throughout the campaign, scoring five goals in 24 Serie A games.
