Inter midfielder Matias Vecino has decided not to have surgery on his injured knee and instead will undergo physical therapy, 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, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2022, is suffering from a knee meniscus injury, but doesn’t want to have surgery to fix the issue. Instead, Vecino would prefer to continue with his physical therapy, alternating between training in the gym and training on the pitch. His situation is being closely monitored by the club, especially considering the incredibly busy schedule ahead of the club over the next few months.

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, being regularly deployed by coach Antonio Conte despite links with a move away in January.
