Milan Confirm Simon Kjaer Will Be Out for Six Months

Milan have confirmed that Simon Kjaer has undergone surgery on his knee and will be out of action for six months.

The Danish centre-back damaged his ACL during the Rossoneri‘s match against Genoa and had to be stretchered off the pitch.

Milan have confirmed that Kjaer underwent surgery and will be out for six months. A statement on the club’s official website read: “AC Milan confirms that Simon Kjær underwent arthroscopic surgery today to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament and reinsert the medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

“The operation, which was carried out at the Casa di Cura La Madonnina clinic, was a perfect success, with Dr. Roberto Pozzoni performing it with the help of the CTS (Centro di Traumatologia dello Sport – Sports Traumatology Centre) team from the Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute in the presence of Club doctor Stefano Mazzoni.

“Kjaer is doing well and is eager to begin the rehabilitation process immediately. He’s expected to be out for six months.

Kjaer’s absence is a massive blow for Milan as he was doing pretty well for them. Alessio Romagnoli will receive a lot more game time now but the Rossoneri will have to sign someone during the winter transfer window so that they are not short at the back.
