Dani Alves is successfully operated on for a fracture in his forearm

Alves will start recovery work in his own home and the club has not established a specific withdrawal period.


Brazilian full-back Dani Alves, from Sao Paulo, underwent a successful operation this Thursday for a fracture in his right forearm that he suffered the day before in the advance match of the eleventh day of the League against Athletico Paranaense.

"Dani Alves' surgery to correct a fracture in the right ulna was performed successfully" and "lasted approximately one hour," the São Paulo club reported in a statement. The shirt "10" will begin the recovery work in his own home, with the supervision of the medical department and accompanied by the physiotherapists of the Tricolor de Morumbí.

Alves, 37, was injured in the second half of the match that ended in a 1-0 home victory for Sao Paulo over the city of Curitiba, thanks to both striker Luciano. The ulna fracture occurred in a ball dispute after a throw-in in which the captain of the Brazilian team accidentally kicked off an opponent.

He was quickly replaced and after the game he went straight to the hospital, where he underwent clinical examinations that confirmed the rupture and, consequently, the need for a surgical procedure.

Since his arrival in Sao Paulo in August last year, the former player from Bahia, Seville, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain had not missed a game due to injury, only just due to calls with the canarinha and accumulation of cards. Sao Paulo did not give a recovery period, so it is unknown when he will wear the jersey of the São Paulo capital team again.
