Sevilla striker Kone undergoes knee surgery

Sevilla striker Arouna Kone underwent surgery on his damaged knee on Monday, although he is still set to be sidelined until well into next year.

The 24-year-old sustained the injury playing for the Ivory Coast in last month's 2-1 friendly win over Guinea in Paris, with initial tests confirming the player had torn the cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee.

Kone underwent the operation in Belgium on Monday and Sevilla medical chief Juan Ribas, who was present, said the surgery had the gone 'very well'.

'Some damage has been done to the cartilage in his left knee. On operating we observed that he had two tears, one vertical and one horizontal, something that we couldn't see on the scan,' he explained.

When he first sustained the injury it was feared Kone would miss most of the Primera Liga season, with Spanish media putting his time on the sidelines at up to eight months.

It is still not known exactly how long Kone, who became Sevilla's record signing when he joined from PSV Eindhoven for 12million euros last year, will be missing for, but Ribas said: 'He will be between four and five weeks doing rehabilitation work and once that's finished we will be able to make a prognosis and talk about his return.

'Normally six months is a realistic period.'
