Milan Centre Back Alessandro Nesta Set To Make Quick Recovery After Surgery

The Italian lynchpin will be ready for the start of the season....
Milan's experienced defender Alessandro Nesta underwent surgery yesterday after breaking his hand during the TIM Trophy game against Juventus.

The 34-year old fractured a metarcarpal bone but after a successful operation it's believed he will only be out of action for approximately a week.

The club's official website made an announcement to confirm that Nesta will be ready for the start of the season," Nesta will certainly be available for the opening day of the championship."

The Italian league still doesn't start for almost another two weeks, when the Rossoneri will begin their Serie A campaign against Lecce on 29 August.
