AC Milan on their website have confirmed that right back Alessandro Florenzi underwent surgery today, with the operation being performed by Professor Pier Paolo Mariani in the presence of Club doctor Lucio Genesio at the Villa Stuart Clinic in Rome. The arthroscopic operation, which was carried out to correct a partial tear to the medial meniscus in his left knee, went perfectly to plan. The estimated recovery time is 30 days. The former AS Roma captain had been used as a utility player by Stefano Pioli thus far being deployed as both a right back and right wing. He has 7 appearances for Milan in the opening 8 games of the season starting 2 games and coming off the bench in the remaining 5, he missed the previous game due to this injury and will now miss out on Atalanta, Hellas Verona, FC Porto, Bologna, Torino and possibly big one against AS Roma all in October.
