Florenzi was absent from Milan until February

AC Milan had to play for most of the season without one of their most experienced players in their squad. This is right-back Alessandro Florenzi, who, as announced by the Lombard club, underwent surgery today at the age of 31 after suffering a muscle injury at the end of August. He will miss five months from the playing field.

AC Milan, current champion of Italy and whose Champions League debut they tied on Tuesday against Salzburg (1-1), has already thought about the long absence of Florenzi, so a week ago, in the last market day, with US winger Sergiño Dest on loan from Barça to act as captain Davide Calabria’s replacement on the right flank.

The doctor who operated on Dembélé

Florenzi seriously injured the biceps femoris tendon of his left thigh in the last moments of the Serie A match against Sassuolo on August 30 (0-0) and this morning he had to undergo surgery in Finland for the doctor Lasse Lempainen, the same that took part in the azulgrana Ousmane Dembélé.

“The operation was a perfect success and Alessandro will return to Italy tomorrow (Friday) to begin rehabilitation. The deadlines for his return to full activity are estimated at five months,” AC Milan said in its statement.

Got it the summer after his transfer

Florenzi was loaned by Roma last season to AC Milan, who exercised a purchase option for 2.5 million euros this summer and signed him until 2025. In recent years, Roma have also loaned him to Valencia and PSG.

His defeat until February represents a serious blow to Stefano Pioli, coach of a Milan that, in addition to trying to reach the knockout stage of the Champions League in a group consisting of Chelsea, Dinamo Zagreb and Salzburg, is defending the ‘ scudetto’. After five games played, they are third in Serie A, two points behind leaders Atalanta.

Ibrahimovic, another long-term loss

It is Milan’s second long-term absence with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will not reappear until the start of 2023 after undergoing surgery in May for a serious knee injury.
