Salcedo has knee surgery

Hellas Verona confirm striker Eddie Salcedo will be out for at least a month after knee surgery, but avoided far worse ligament damage.

The teenage forward, who came up through the Genoa and Inter youth academies before going on loan, had keyhole surgery on his right knee this morning.

A statement from the Serie A side confirmed the area was cleaned up with this method, meaning there was no need to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament.

“The player will nonetheless have to rest for approximately a month. The schedule for a full recovery is not at this moment quantifiable.”
