Inter Milan has said that Chile striker Alexis Sanchez may need surgery on his ankle after picking up an injury in their 0-0 draw with Colombia last week.
Sanchez injured tendons in his left ankle when he was fouled towards the end of the match and missed Tuesday’s friendly win over Guinea.
Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda had stated that after the Colombia game Sanchez could be out of action for two to three months if the injury required surgery.
Sanchez who is 30yrs old, is currently on loan at Inter from Premier League side Manchester United.
He has scored once for the Italians in four appearances in all competitions.
