Depor’s Lucas faces spell out

Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering a thigh injury.

Lucas picked up a knock towards the end of Depor’s 2-1 victory over Getafe last week, and a statement on the club’s official website confirmed the Arsenal loanee had sustained “major bruising on his left quadriceps, causing a hematoma in his crural muscle.”

The 29-year-old only returned to Galicia at the end of August and scored his first goal back in the win against Getafe.

Consequently, Depor boss Pepe Mel may only have one striker in Florin Andone at his disposal when he takes his team to Eibar next Sunday.
