AC Milan via their website have announced that Davide Calabria has undergone sports hernia surgery in Milan today. The operation, performed by videolaparoscopy by Dr Giuseppe Sansonetti in the presence of Rossoneri doctor Lucio Genesio, was perfectly successful.

Recovery time is estimated to be 6 weeks.

The defender has undergone surgery twice this season as he comes off one of his best campaigns ever. The former Primavera youth player has cemented himself as Stefano Pioli’s starting right back so much so that Andrea Conti was allowed to leave and will represent a significant economic failure. Calabria next season is also set to be the only primavera player to survive the past couple of season as Manuel Locatelli, Patrick Cutrone and Gianluigi Donnarumma have all now been phased out. The player is set to be negotiating a new deal with the club.

He made 39 appearances across all competitions for the Rossoneri this season scoring two goals and providing two assists. His major contributions were on the defensive front where he often neutralised dangerous opponents.
