Portugal winger Guedes out for two months after surgery

  • Print

Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes is expected to be out of action for two months following surgery on Friday, the La Liga club announced. The 22-year-old Portuguese international has been struggling with a pubalgia, commonly known as a sports hernia. "The player will return to Valencia in the coming days to start the recovery work that, according to the initial forecast, is around two months," said the Valencia statement. Guedes, who joined Valencia from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer after a successful campaign on loan at the Mestalla last season, originally sustained the injury during a 1-1 draw with Barcelona in early October but has played in matches since, including the 2-0 defeat at Real Madrid at the start of the month. Marcelino's Valencia have been disappointing so far this season, having finished fourth in La Liga to qualify for the Champions League seven months ago.
