Luiz Felipe: 'The surgery went well'

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe underwent a successful intervention in the right ankle. ‘I can’t wait to get back on the pitch’.

The Brazilian defender suffered an injury against Frosinone during the friendlies in September and has eventually decided to correct the problem with a surgery.

He travelled to Munich for the surgery and he sent a message to the fans after the successful intervention.

“As many of you know, today I underwent surgery on my right ankle,” he wrote on social media. “You showered me with messages of affection and you made me feel part of a big family!

“I want to reassure you that the operation was necessary and it went well. I feel good and I can’t wait to get back on the pitch.

“I’ll be back soon, I promise.”

The 23-year-old centre-back has played through the problems this term and has appeared in 10 Serie A games with the Aquile.
