AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan has undergone surgery on a wrist injury sustained in their Champions League meeting with Liverpool last month.
The 26-year-old was signed as Gianluigi Donnarumma’s replacement this summer and has been a standout performer for the Rossoneri this season.
According to Football Italia, the shot-stopper fell awkwardly after palming away Salah’s effort to keep the visitor’s in the game.
Despite concerns over the injury, Maignan has started every single one of AC Milan’s matches since, which included four Serie A games and a Champions League match against Atletico Madrid.
They’re now set to be without their No.1 for a period of time, after he underwent a procedure to fix the problem.
Sky in Italy revealed on Tuesday that Maignan was set for an arthroscopy, a type of keyhole surgery, after persistent pain in his left wrist.

Liverpool face AC Milan in their final Champions League group stage match in early December and Maignan faces a race against time to be fit for the meeting.
