More injury news for Milan, as Matias Silvestre underwent keyhole surgery today on his right knee.
The defender arrived on loan from Inter over the summer and had been struggling with a meniscus problem.
This afternoon the Rossoneri released a statement confirming that non-surgical therapy had not reached the desired objectives.
Silvestre went under the knife with keyhole surgery on the meniscus in his right knee.
It is not clear when the Argentine will be available, but he joins fellow defenders Daniele Bonera, Mattia De Sciglio, Jherson Vergara and Ignazio Abate on the treatment table.
