Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin underwent surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament today.
The unlucky shot-stopper sustained the injury during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Roma at Marassi.
It occurred in his left knee just nine months after suffering the same exact injury in the right knee, an incident that forced him to miss Euro 2016.
Genoa released a statement confirming Perin went under the knife today in Rome’s Villa Stuart clinic with Professor Francesco Mariani.
"The operation was a success and the recovery time will be shorter, around three months," Mariani told Mediaset Premium.
