Inter’s Santon undergoes surgery

Inter Milan defender Davide Santon has had his right knee cleaned

up in arthroscopic surgery.

Inter said the procedure went smoothly on Wednesday, although

the club did not set a date for the 19-year-old full back’s return.

It is expected he will miss Inter’s Champions League semifinal with

Barcelona later this month.

Santon played for Italy at last year’s Confederations Cup but

is unlikely to make the World Cup squad.
