Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon on loan at Fulham has been ruled out for two months with a broken jaw
This comes as a blow for the lad as he has scored 6 goals in 23 appearances for the Championship side this season.
The Brazilian suffered the injury during their recent 2-2 draw against Cardiff City when he fouled Welsh club’s winger Kadeem Harris and had to be replaced just 25 minutes into the match. The club have confirmed that he will require two months of rehabilitation after undergoing surgery, which will be a major blow for the Championship promotion chasers.
“Following an injury sustained in the first half of our 2-2 draw with Cardiff City, the Club can confirm that Lucas Piazon underwent surgery on his jaw on Saturday evening,” a statement read on Fulham’s official site.
“A rehabilitation period of approximately two months is expected. Further information will be detailed on fulhamfc.com in due course,” the statement added.
