Lucas Leiva has told Adrian Clarke of Sport Media Solutions that he is afraid that he could be out for six months. Ben Smith of the Times also confirmed this.
Hopefully this is just Lucas’ judgement and not the doctors, maybe the fact that he hasn’t been injured often leads him to believe that the injury would take longer for him to recover from.
Official results of the scan should be known later today or tomorrow.
Until then we have to wait and simply hope for the best, get well soon Lucas.
