Pablo Mari has successfully undergone surgery after he was wounded during a deadly knife assault in an Italian supermarket on Friday.
After a mass stabbing at a Milan supermarket that left one employee dead, the surgery, it was learned, was to rebuild two injured muscles in his back.
Five people were taken to the hospital after the heinous incident, including the Spanish center-back.
In his club Monza anticipated spending two to three days in the hospital and a two-month recovery period before returning to his previous level of physical activity.
The Serie A team Monza tweeted that they were “unified in mourning” with the family of the murdered store clerk.
Adriano Galliani, the chief executive of Monza, and head coach Raffaele Palladino visited the 29-year-old on Thursday night at the Niguarda Hospital before Galliani said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport: “He had the strength to joke and assure me that he will be back in training on Monday.”
“I’ve spoken to Pablo,” Galliani later affirmed to Sky Italia. He told me about this amazing occurrence. He was standing next to his wife, with his son in a trolley.
“He paid nothing any attention. The criminal’s knife was then felt as a sharp pain in his back.
This season, Mari has played in eight games for the Serie A team and has one goal.
