Inter Milan will not have to go under the knife to deal with a muscular problem in his calf.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.
Former Juventus, Chelsea, and Fiorentina wingback Cuadrado has been dealing with some injury problems early on in the season.
The Colombian, who joined Inter on a free transfer during the summer, played in each of the first three matches of the campaign. He came on as a substitute in each occasion.
However, Cuadrado then picked up an injury during the September international break.
The problem was diagnosed as tendinitis for the Colombian.
Therefore, when Cuadrado returned from the last international break, he was not able to appear in several matches.
However, the 35-year-old did come off the bench in Inter’s last match before the current break. He played for over half an hour against Bologna.
Inter Wingback Juan Cuadrado Won’t Have To Undergo Surgery
Cuadrado has suffered a recurrence of some tendon inflammation problems in his left calf.
This will definitely mean that the former Bianconeri man will have to miss the weekend’s Serie A match away to Torino.
Then, it is not entirely clear whether Cuadrado will be able to return soon after.
The Colombian is currently undergoing a recovery program. His condition and recovery timeline should become clearer in the next few days or early next week.
But what’s not certain is whether or not Cuadrado will be able to return for the Champions League group stage match against Red Bull Salzburg. Or for subsequent league matches against Roma and Atalanta.
Given the uncertainty around Cuadrado’s condition, there are one or two questions about the surgery option.
But according to Tuttosport, Cuadrado will not need to go under the knife. The 35-year-old can recover without surgery, and return to the pitch in the relatively near future.
