Napoli striker Milik given green light to train

Naples, Jan 13 (IANS) Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik has received the green light to return to training with the Italian football club after being out for 97 days due to a knee injury.

The 22-year-old came on Thursday afternoon to a clinic for a check with the doctor who operated on him in October, Napoli said on Twitter.

The Polish international was injured last October 9 with his national team in a match against Denmark, but managed to recover faster than expected, reports Efe.

He joined Napoli last summer from Amsterdam-based AFC Ajax for a transfer fee of around $35 million. He has scored seven goals in nine games for Napoli across all competitions.
