AC Milan defender Pierre Kalulu is expected to be out of action for around four months after surgery.
Milan has confirmed that Pierre Kalulu underwent surgery on Thursday to repair the damage after he ruptured a thigh muscle. Kalulu suffered a thigh issue in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Napoli.
Milan said on their official website: “AC Milan can confirm that Pierre Kalulu underwent surgery today to repair a complete rupture of his left rectus femoris tendon.
“The operation, which was carried out in Finland by Professor Lasse Lempainen in the presence of AC Milan’s head of medical team, Stefano Mazzoni, was a complete success.
“His expected recovery time is estimated to be around four months.”
The 23-year-old Kalulu started his first game in Serie A this season against Napoli. He had to leave the pitch after 19 minutes.
In the summer of 2020, Kalulu joined AC Milan from Lyon. He has scored three goals in 106 matches.
