Pablo Mari facing two months on the sidelines

AC Monza have confirmed that Pablo Mari is facing a couple of months on the sidelines after successfully undergoing surgery on the stab wound suffered in last night’s random attack in a Milan supermarket.

The Spaniard is set to spend the next couple of days recovering in hospital and will subsequently need a prolonged period of rest before he’s allowed to resume training.

A statement from AC Monza reads:

“The specialists of the General Surgery-Trauma Team of the Niguarda Hospital in Milan carried out this morning the surgery to reconstruct the two injured muscles on Pablo Marí’s back. The surgery went well and a hospital stay of two or three days is expected. After the resignation, the player will be able to start a rehabilitation process. This type of muscle injury usually requires two months of rest before you can resume physical activities.”

Clearly unlucky to be caught up in the attack, the 29-year-old is also incredibly fortunate not to have suffered an even worse injury.

“Today I was lucky, because I saw a person die in front of me,” Mari told Italian media. 

While it sounds like Pablo will make a full physical recovery soon enough, it’s hard to imagine the mental trauma he’s been through after witnessing the carnage wrought by the attacker.

Once again, we wish him and his family all the best as they process everything that has happened.

Get well soon, Pablo.


In times like this, we realise how football is just but a sports and that life really matters the most. I am glad Pablo is OK and my heart goes out to those who lost loved ones, crazy world it is. Hoping the club gives Pablo all the support he needs at this trying times


Sad times we live in when a statement like this gets even one downvote

Thousands of people are killed everyday. Most of these are not reported by media. Should we never play sports again because someone died?

Football is a game that millions enjoy on a daily basis, you can enjoy watching your team without having to mourn every awful thing that humans do.

If Pablo Mari wasn’t involved we would never of even heard of this incident and shit would just go on with no consequences.

Who is mourning the 45,000 African children that have died since this incident?


Their parents?

Best of luck to Pablo and his family. I can’t imagine how scared he must have been with his wife and child with him. Let’s hope he makes a full recovery and he and family get all the help they need.


So glad his wife and son weren’t hurt too, I guess he may have defended them and taken the injury as a result. Good luck to him, a crazy thing to have happened to him which I hope he can mend from physically as well as mentally.


Reports say he was knifed in the back, oblivious of what was coming. Was probably the first victim. He is just darn lucky to live to tell the tale.


Doesn’t sound like that is what happened at all. He got stabbed in the back with no warning.
Shocking stuff.

A Different George

Oddly, a former Serie A player was involved in subduing the attacker; his presence was apparently coincidental.


Cannot understand the downvotes for this.

Some of you really are made of stone. With a lot of bird shit on top.

A very unfortunate incident. Hopefully, he’ll make a full recovery and be back playing for his team.


Sometimes the psychological injuries take longer to heal than the physical- hope Pablo has access to some time with a specialist during his recovery process.


Horrendous incident. Get well soon, Pablo.


Get well soon Pablo, what a horrendous incident


Get well dude.

Cliff Bastin

Had something similar happen to me nearly 30 years ago now while completely mingling my own business had a year of rehab afterwards but the mental scars stay with you for life.
