LAZIO defender Francesco Colonnese faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up a serious injury in his side's 4-2 win over Venezia on Sunday.

The 30-year-old picked up a nasty-looking knee injury after a collision with Venezia defender Steffano Bettarini.

Colonnese was forced to be substituted early in the first half as a result of the incident and it is feared that he could be sidelined for as long as six months.

The former Internazionale and Napoli ace will undergo tests later this week to find out the full extent of the problem, but it seems that his season is over.
