There are confirmations by AC Milan that Andrea Conti will undergo tests after sustaining another injury to his knee.
In September, the full-back underwent surgery on the area and had been hoping to recover in time for the upcoming Milan derby on April 4.
However, the Serie A giants have released a statement to announce that the 24-year-old has suffered “a severe sprain”, although an initial examination has ruled out another rupture of his cruciate ligament.
A statement read: “AC Milan inform that during today’s training session, Andrea Conti has suffered a sprained knee injury, the same knee he underwent surgery on September 16.
“The diagnostic exams and checks carried out by Professor Herbert Schoenhuber excluded a rupture of the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), but they have shown a severe sprain to the lateral knee compartment, which will be further evaluated in the coming days.”
Andrea Conti joined Milan in July, but has made only 2 appearances for Milan.
