Inter defender has surgery after head clash
Inter Milan left back Cristian Chivu underwent surgery after fracturing his skull during Wednesday's 1-0 Serie A win at Chievo. The Romanian, who is expected to make a full recovery, clashed heads with Chievo forward Sergio Pellissier.
The surgery to relieve a haematoma and take out bone fragments lasted more than an hour.
"We hope (Chivu) can come back as soon as possible but I think he will be out of action for a while," Inter coach Jose Mourinho said.
