Atletico Madrid defender Sime Vrsaljko undergoes surgery to remove surgical materials from his knee

Atletico Madrid defender Sime Vrsaljko on Thursday underwent corrective surgery to remove surgical materials left in his knee in a previous operation. 

The club said that the Croatian international underwent an arthroscopy on his left knee to remove surgical material from a ligament operation he had 16 months ago.

The 28-year-old right-back starred in Croatia's run to the World Cup final in 2018 but missed almost all of the following year through injury.

Atletico said the operation in Madrid would soon allow Vrsaljko to begin training.
