Lille’s Mavuba undergoes successful knee surgery
Lille captain Rio Mavuba has undergone knee surgery and faces up
to three months out of action.
The midfielder had the operation Monday after a meniscus problem
in his left knee was diagnosed when injured while playing against
Rennes at the end of September.
His club says the operation went well but he is still expected
to be sidelined for between six weeks and three months.
Mavuba had only recently broken back into the France team under
new coach Didier Deschamps.
