Lille's Mavuba undergoes successful surgery
Lille, France (Sports Network) - Lille announced Tuesday that captain Rio Mavuba has undergone a successful surgery to repair damage to his left knee.
Mavuba suffered the injury during Lille's defeat to Saint-Etienne in the League Cup semifinal earlier this month. He previously has surgery on the same knee, missing six weeks following an operation to repair his meniscus in October.
The 28-year-old is expected to be out for up to three months as he rehabilitates.
