A.C. Milan and England center-back Fikayo Tomori will have to undergo a meniscus
operation Friday after injuring his left knee in Thursday night’s 3-1 Italian Cup
round of 16 victory over Genoa, the Rossoneri said
NSL: Understands Fikayo Tomori will be out for a chunk of important games.
MilanNews reports that it is always better not to make too many predictions about
recovery times given it can vary from injury to injury, but Tomori – who will be
undergoing arthroscopic surgery this afternoon for a lesion of the medial meniscus in
his left knee – should be around a month.
There is actually a precedent that points to this too, given that Alessandro Florenzi
also had the same surgery on a meniscal problem in his knee and ended up missing
35 days in total, which equated to seven games.
Therefore, Tomori is certain to miss the matches against Spezia (January 17),
Juventus (January 23) and Inter (February 6) at San Siro, plus the Coppa Italia
quarter-final against Lazio or Udinese (February 9) while will be at home.
His return to the field could therefore take place either against Sampdoria at San Siro
on 13 February or against Salernitana away on 20 February.
