Bad news from the infirmary for Ismael Bennacer.

AC Milan will have to do without Ismael Bennacer for at least six months. That’s the response from the Rossoneri medical staff after the Algerian midfielder underwent surgery on the right knee he injured during the Champions League semifinal first leg match against Inter Milan.

The Meneghina club itself announced the outcome of the surgery: “AC Milan announces that Ismaël Bennacer underwent arthroscopy of his right knee in Lyon this morning. The repair of the chondral lesion was successfully performed by Dr. Bertrand Sonnery Cottet in the presence of the Rossoneri Medical Area Manager Stefano Mazzoni. Recovery time is estimated to be at least 6 months.”
