Fiorentina's keeper Cristiano Lupatelli has been told that he needs to undergo surgery to solve a meniscus problem, picked up during the Viola's match against Milan at the weekend.

The Italian keeper has had his fair share of bad luck in terms of injury recently.

Having made a brave recovery to come back in the summer from a serious knee injury, he again looks to be off the pitch for at least another month in order to fully recover.

If all goes well, this may allow Lupatelli to be back in the game in time for the club's match against Brescia on January 16.
