The 21-year-old was unable to complete 90 minutes of a 2-1 Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg victory over Inter and medical examinations have today confirmed the extent of the damage.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Mattia Destro twisted his right ankle and left knee during the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg.

"The player underwent two rounds of tests which identified a tear to the lateral meniscus in his knee.

"He will therefore require an operation via arthroscopy, which will be performed by Professor Cerulli in Rome over the coming days."

The Italy international has scored four goals for the Giallorossi since arriving from Siena in a 11.5million euro deal in July.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
