Goncalo Guedes faces two-month Valencia layoff

Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes is set to face up to two months out of action following an operation on his abdominal muscles.

The Portugal international has struggled with injuries to date this campaign and has featured in just 10 La Liga matches for Los Che, without yet finding the net.

A report in Marca outlines how the winger has already undergone extensive physiotherapy and rehabilitation exercises but his fitness issues have not dissipated.

The 22-year-old is now taking up the ‘last option’ available and undergo surgery on the issue, and is not expected to return to first-team action until February.
