Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan is undergoing surgery on his wrist today, but he sustained the injury when saving Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool penalty last month.
Only after the operation is completed will we know roughly how long the goalkeeper will be out of action for.
The reports currently vary anywhere from a couple of weeks to two months, but the keyhole surgery was recommended by a specialist after he continued to feel pain in his left wrist.
The issue has been going on since September 18, when Maignan saved Salah’s penalty at Anfield in the Champions League clash.
Maignan fell awkwardly during the incident and some even suggested he had collided with the upright, so he had treatment on the spot and was able to continue.
There were also doubts as to whether he’d be able to play the next Milan match, but he was allowed to go in goal with heavy strapping to his wrist.
The pain continued and it is not clear if this attempt to brush off the injury made it worse.
