After about a day’s worth of anticipation from all Napoli fans, the worst possible news has surfaced. Their star striker will be out for the foreseeable future after tearing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament.
After 24 hours, we can finally say it’s official, Polish striker, Arkadiusz Milik, has torn the ACL on his left knee. The injury came during a match yesterday where his native Poland took on Denmark in World Cup 2018 qualifying. News like this coming at a time this delicate for Napoli is what they could have least wanted.
As reported by the team, Milik will undergo surgery tomorrow at Rome’s Villa Stuart. The usual timetable of recovery for an injury to the ACL is no less than 4-6 months. It is foreseen that it will take Milik at least that time period to fully heal. Milik’s season is in danger of ending sooner than anyone ever expected… In bocca al lupo Arek!
