Bologna will be without striker Federico Santander for four months after he was diagnosed with a serious knee injury.
The centre-forward sustained the injury during Tuesday’s Coppa Italia match against Reggina.
A statement released by the club today confirms he will require an operation to reconstruct the base of the ligament in his right knee.
It will be performed by Professor Marcacci at the Toniolo Clinic.
The recovery time stated by Bologna is in the region of four months.
