Florian Lejeune will again be operated on by Professor Paolo Mariani in Rome to repair his left knee ACL injury.
Mariani performed the same operation on Florian’s right knee back in early August so the Frenchman will be going through the exact same procedures again.
Hopefully, Lejeune can come back again in about four months like he did last time, but Rafa will then give him ample time before playing him in the first team.
But the main thing is for the knee to be 100% again as soon as possible.
Florian has his wife and young daughter with him in Rome.
We send Florian our very best wishes and hopes for another speedy recovery.

Here’s a tweet from Shields Gazette reporter Ciaran Kelly
Florian Lejeune has touched down in Rome ahead of going under the knife at the Villa Stuart clinic. Tough rehabilitation ahead but operation should only take around half an hour. Wife and daughter have travelled wtih him. #nufc
