Lucas Leiva operated on his knee in April, taking advantage of the lockout to remedy his physical issues.
But now, the outcome has only escalated his condition. Lazio’s injury crisis continues as the Brazilian requires another surgery on his knee.
Lucas Leiva has, according to Radiosei (via), a new operation planned in August.
He may thus be out for the rest of the season, but is hoping to overcome the problem ahead of next season.
In the meantime, he is being assessed and the absence in midfield could force him to play through the discomfort, as he has done in recent weeks.
Il Messaggero argues the Brazilian veteran is furious and resigned, as his meniscus keeps giving him issues.
Also, it has not been verified whether the 33-year-old would quit instantly or if the former Liverpool man wants to support out his colleagues in a difficult time for the Aquile.
