Perin to have sec­ond knee op­er­a­tion

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

GENOA goal­keeper Mat­tia Perin has rup­tured the cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in his left knee and will un­dergo surgery in the com­ing days, the Serie A club said on their web­site (genoacfc.it) yes­ter­day. The 24-year-old was in­jured in the first few min­utes of Genoa’s 1-0 home loss to AS Roma in Serie A on Sun­day. He suf­fered a sim­i­lar prob­lem in his right knee last April. It took the Italy in­ter­na­tional more than four months to re­cover from surgery af­ter the pre­vi­ous in­jury, which ruled him out of the 2016 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship.
