Inter midfielder Matias Vecino is still dealing with a knee injury but the problem won’t require surgery, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

The report details how the 28-year-old Uruguayan midfielder has been suffering from a knee meniscus injury for some time now, but after meeting with the Nerazzurri’s medical staff, discovered that surgery wouldn’t be needed to fix the issue. Instead he will undergo physical therapy and will be working in the gym.

Vecino has made 23 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1676 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided one assist. The player was close to a move away from Milan in the January transfer window, with multiple clubs interested, but a move never materialised and he was quickly worked back into coach Antonio Conte’s squad, even scoring against AC Milan in the derby.
