Biglia out for four months after calf surgery

By Sports Desk November 08, 2018

AC Milan have confirmed midfielder Lucas Biglia will miss the next four months after suffering a calf injury during training last week.

Biglia suffered the injury in his right leg on October 31 and missed Milan's last-gasp victory over Udinese in Serie A on Sunday as the Rossoneri evaluated the severity of the problem.

Scans confirmed surgery was required to fix the issue, and Biglia was operated on in Finland on Thursday.

Biglia's operation was a success, Milan confirmed in the build-up to their Europa League clash with Real Betis, but he faces a lengthy recovery.

"The injury suffered by Lucas Biglia last Wednesday during the morning training session involved the lesion of the myotendinous junction of the medial segment of the right calf," a Milan statement read.

"The operation, carried out today in Finland by professor Sakari Orava in the presence of the team doctor Stefano Mazzoni, was successful.

"Full healing will take four months."
