Chelsea center-back David Luiz is still struggling with the knee injury he suffered in December but says he does not need surgery.
Luiz, who was not named in Brazil's squad for World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Paraguay, has played the last three months with a knee injury he suffered in a tackle from Manchester City's Sergio Aguero back in December. "Only I feel the pain so nobody knows [how hard it’s been to cope with]. But we have amazing medical staff and they have been great with me," he told Standard Sport, "I won’t need an operation in the summer. But it’s very good for me to rest, not just the knee, but the body as well." A mainstay in Antonio Conte's defense, Luiz will have 12 days to recover before a crowd list of fixtures. Following a home match on April 1 with Crystal Palace, the Blues will face Manchester City and Bournemouth within a span of just four days. Mon, Mar 20, 2017 02:43:00 PM
