Barcelona's offensive player Filipe Coutinho has undergone a new operation. The news was officially announced by the club. The Brazilian underwent an intervention to remove a cyst from the meniscus of one knee. The operation was performed by Dr. Rodrigo Lasmar yesterday, and the footballer will start his recovery in the coming days.
Coutinho is known to have been injured during the match against Eibar on December 29. In January, he underwent knee surgery, but then it turned out that he had a cyst on the meniscus, which must be removed surgically, as it interferes with his recovery.
Yesterday's intervention with Dr. Lasmar, which was observed by representatives of the medical staff of Barca, was successful, but the club is not yet hired to announce when he will be ready to play. The Catalans announced that plans for his return will be made depending on the pace of recovery.
This season, the 28-year-old Brazilian has only 14 games with the Barcelona team, in which he scored 3 goals and made 2 assists.
