Piatti out for up to 10 weeks

Pablo Piatti has undergone emergency surgery this afternoon on a fractured elbow and is facing between eight and 10 weeks out of action.

The tricky winger landed awkwardly in this morning’s training session with Valencia when attempting a bicycle kick.

Tests undergone revealed that, as suspected, the player had damaged his right elbow and surrounding area.

Marca report that it required immediate corrective surgery, which upon completion this afternoon, has left the player now facing a possible eight to 10-week stretch on the sidelines.
