Cancelo surgery successful | Football Italia
Juventus have confirmed that Joao Cancelo’s knee surgery was “fully successful”, so he should return early next year.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed today that the Portuguese had torn his meniscus, predicting he would return after the winter break in late January.
“Today, Joao Cancelo has undergone a medial selective meniscectomy on his right knee,” a statement on the Bianconeri’s official website announced.
“The operation, performed by Professor Roberto Rossi, a consultant for Juventus and J-Medical, in the presence of Juventus health manager Dr. Claudio Rigo at the Clinica Sedes Sapientiae was fully successful.
“From tomorrow Cancelo will start rehabilitative care.”
