MILAN (AP) — Inter Milan striker Diego Milito has had successful surgery on his injured left knee.

The Serie A club says Milito "underwent a successful knee operation" on Saturday "after damaging his anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament."

Milito was stretchered off after badly twisting his knee in the seventh minute of Inter's 2-0 win over Cluj in the Europa League on Thursday.

The 33-year-old is expected to be sidelined for around six months.
