Perin to have second knee operation
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.
