AC Milan

Official: Saelemaekers suffers partial MCL tear in left knee

Alexis Saelemaekers was forced to leave AC Milan’s game against Empoli early due to an injury and an official update has now arrived from the club. Unfortunately for the player, the World Cup is in danger. 

The Belgian received a knock to his left knee during the game and pretty quickly signalled to the bench that he need to come off. Bad news for Milan, who also have Junior Messias on the injury list and thus had to play Rade Krunic on the right.

As confirmed by Milan, Saelemaekers has suffered a partial tear to the medial collateral ligament (MCL) and he will now undergo conservative therapy, rather than surgery. The recovery time should be 6-8 weeks for the winger.

In short, depending on how long the recovery takes, he might not get called up by Belgium for the World Cup (which will begin in late November). As was also confirmed by the club to the media, Davide Calabria and Simon Kjaer will be evaluated tomorrow.
