Lazio De Vrij set to miss rest of season

04 November 2015, 18:50

Rome - Lazio are set to be without Stefan de Vrij for the rest of the season after the Dutch defender underwent knee surgery on Wednesday.

Dutch international De Vrij is considered Lazio's strongest central defender but he will be sidelined for six months as he recovers from the operation on his left knee.

A statement by the Serie A club said: "The surgery, performed by the Head of the Department of orthopedics and sport traumatology, Dr. Lagae, was a complete success and the expected recovery time for the resumption of competition is about six months."
