MILAN - Inter Milan right-back Maicon is
to have knee surgery in his native Brazil, the Serie A club said
The Brazil international complained of pain during training
in the morning and tests showed an injury to his meniscus, the
club said on their website.
Inter, who face Lecce in their opening Serie A game on August 28, did not say how long Maicon would be sidelined.
The club recently signed fellow Brazilian Jonathan who plays
in the same position.
Inter have already lost the services of Italy's reserve
goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano for about six months after he
suffered a serious knee injury during training last month.
