Inzaghi saw Belgian specialist Marc Martens today, who decided that Inzaghi must go under the surgeon's knife in order to fully recover from his ankle problems. In May, the 31-year-old had a fragment of bone removed from the same ankle - an operation which meant he missed out on a place in Italy's squad for UEFA EURO 2004™.
Not fully fit
Inzaghi has failed to recover full fitness since and has been restricted to a substitute's role this season, although he did score an important goal for the Rossoneri in the 3-1 victory against Celtic FC in the UEFA Champions League. The Italian champions lost 2-1 against FC Barcelona yesterday but are still well-placed to qualify from Group F, having taken nine points from four games.
