Lucas Leiva needs new operation

Lazio’s injury nightmare continues as Lucas Leiva needs another operation on his knee and could be out for the remainder of the season.

The Brazilian operated on the problem in April, taking advantage of the lockdown to fix his physical problems, but the result has worsened his situation.

Simone Inzaghi’s men have struggled after the resumption and a host of injury setbacks have held them back in the Scudetto battle.

Lucas Leiva has, according to Radiosei, a new operation scheduled in August, hoping to overcome the problem ahead of next season.

In the meantime, he is being evaluated and the absence in midfield might force him to play through the pain, like he has done in recent weeks.

Il Messaggero claims the Brazilian veteran is ‘furious and resigned’, as his meniscus continues to give him issues.

It has not been confirmed if the 33-year-old will stop immediately or if the former Liverpool man continues to help out his teammates in a complicated period for the Aquile.
