Palacio surgery postponed

Fears that Inter's Rodrigo Palacio would have to undergo surgery have been temporarily allayed in favour of continued conservative therapy.

The Argentine faced a consultation in Amsterdam today over his recurring ankle trouble, which has been plaguing the 32-year-old since the World Cup in Brazil.

The verdict from the meeting overseen by Inter doctor Piero Volpi, however, is that the player should receive conservative therapy on the issue, rather than undergo a clean-up operation at this time.

This is according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the situation will most likely be revised come the end of the season.
