Inter Milan’s head of medical services Piero Volpi has revealed that Alexis Sanchez is going through a successful recovery from an ankle ligament injury and he could return to the playing field earlier than predicted. The Chile international sustained the damage on international duty last month and he has since been on the sidelines after a surgery to sort the concern.
In an interview with La Cuarta, Volpi said that Sanchez is going through the right recovery path after the injury setback and he could return before the mid-January date, provided things go well, he told: “It is a delicate injury, but the recovery is going very well. The deadlines are being met.Mid-January [is the return date] but we’ll see. Alexis could even come back a little earlier if all goes well. He has not yet done work with the ball, but we hope that in the next few days we will have news about it. Everything is going well.”
