Balotelli undergoes eye surgery, ready to play in 10 days


Manchester City striker, Mario Balotelli, has undergone a successful surgery on his eyes, after an allergy made it impossible for him to continue wearing contact lenses. The operation was scheduled for Tuesday, but it was brought forward to Monday, to avoid photographers and reporters laying ambush for the Italian.

“He had a few problems with contact lenses some years ago,” surgeon Emanuele Scuri told Sky Sport Italia. “We waited for the defect to stabilise over the last four years and this was the right time to have the operation. His eyes did not tolerate the contact lenses and had problems at the start of the season.

“I think in around 10 days he should be ready to play again. Already this morning he asked if he could drive and I suggested he should get a lift until Thursday.

“We brought the operation forward by a day to avoid paparazzi. This surgery will enable Balotelli to see very well.”

Balotelli will now miss Italy’s two World Cup qualifying games, against Bulgaria and Malta and is doubtful for City’s Champions League game against Real Madrid on September 18.
