Football - Malaga: Julio Baptista


The 30-year-old Brazil international, who missed most of last season because of injury, was operated on in a Barcelona hospital after having  undergone a scan.

Malaga announced in a statement that Baptista will remain under observation in hospital  and will need to keep the injured area immobile for at least two weeks.

The former Real Madrid, Arsenal and Roma player will then face a recovery period of four months, meaning he will miss the start of the new La Liga season.
