The Lazio player apparently went under the knife at the Paideia clinic in Rome, and his appendix was removed successfully and without complications. He’ll be sent home soon.
Born in San Jose del Valle in Cadiz, Luis Alberto began his youth career with Xerez before joining Sevilla aged 12.
He played for Sevilla C, Sevilla B and the first team, but failed to nail down a consistent role. He was loaned to Barcelona B for a period before joining Liverpool in a permanent deal in 2013.
He’s remained in Rome ever since, becoming a Spain international and one of the finest playmakers in the European game.
