Benevento player Alessandro Tuia is out of action for at least a month after undergoing surgery on facial fractures.
The 30-year-old defender sustained the injury during the final minutes of Benevento’s 3-1 defeat to Hellas Verona on Monday evening.
A statement released by the club confirmed he went under the knife today in Rome’s Villa Mafalda clinic.
The surgery reduced the fracture to the left cheekbone and connection to the jaw.
“The necessary time for an optimal recovery is one month.”
