Faouzi Ghoulam could miss the rest of the season as Napoli suspect the left-back has fractured his kneecap.
Ghoulam had been closing in on a return from an ACL injury, but the Algerian has broken down during his recovery, with Napoli fearing he has done more damage to his right knee.
“During today’s training session, the defender injured his right knee,” read a statement on the Partenopei’s official website.
“Ghoulam will be visited by Professor Mariani at Villa Stuart clinic later today. He is suspected to have fractured his kneecap.”
