Andrea Orlandi is on the road to recovery following his knee operation last week.
The Albion midfielder underwent keyhole surgery in Barcelona to repair a damaged meniscus and has already begun his rehabilitation.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “The doctor I went to see is regarded as one of the best in Europe so although it was disappointing that I had to undergo surgery, I was in the best hands.
“I picked up the injury at the start of the season and although I was hoping rest would cure the problem, I was told I would risk further damage if I didn’t have surgery.
“But everything went very well and already I am doing light exercises to help with my recovery. I will be back at the club this week to continue my rehabilitation and with another international break coming up soon, hopefully I won’t miss too many matches.”
Orlandi has made just two appearances for the Seagulls this season, but he has been delighted with the progress made under Oscar Garcia.
“People can now see what a good coach Oscar is. The football we are playing is attack-minded and good to watch. I’ve enjoyed watching the team but of course I would much rather be playing! I really miss being out on the pitch but hopefully I will be back soon.”
