Naples: Napoli's Polish international striker Arkadiusz Milik has been ruled out for at least four months after undergoing knee surgery on Monday, the Serie A leaders confirmed.
The 23-year-old tore knee ligaments for the second time in a year during the closing stages of Saturday's 3-2 win at SPAL, where Maurizio Sarri's men extended their 100 percent start in Serie A.
"Professor Mariani completed his surgery on Arek Milik's right knee," read a statement on Napoli's official website.
"It wasn't an isolated injury but a complex one, and the surgery was perfectly successful.
"His knee has been strengthened and the Azzurri striker has a recovery time similar to that of his previous injury."
Milik was sidelined for four months last season after tearing anterior cruciate ligaments.
