LUCIANO Civelli has confirmed that he plans to start his recovery from his knee injury with his family in Argentina.

The left-sided midfielder is awaiting an explanatory operation within the next two weeks when the exact nature of his injury will be known.

However long he will be out - and he is still getting around on crutches - Civelli says the injury is a big blow.

“It's very hard for me at the moment,” said Civelli. “I have only played eight games and know I will be out for a long time.

“It's the first injury I have had and know it is a bad one. I felt the pain straight away. I have to wait now and see what happens when they do the operation and then I will know how long I will be out.”
