Pezzella has facial surgery

German Pezzella will miss Fiorentina’s next Serie A match against Milan on Saturday after undergoing facial surgery.

Pezzella fractured the right side of his face during Fiorentina’s 1-0 defeat to Empoli last Sunday, and his club confirmed on Tuesday that his operation was successful.

However, the Viola added in their statement that he would not be available for another 10 days.

That rules the Argentine out of Vincenzo Montella’s Milan reunion this weekend, although he should be back to face Parma and Genoa.
