Narsingh injury blow for PSV

PSV Eindhoven winger Luciano Narsingh will miss up to nine months of action after undergoing a knee operation on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old, who moved to the Philips Stadion from Heerenveen last summer, picked up the injury just before Christmas and faces a lengthy recovery process.

"Luciano Narsingh will be sidelined for six to nine months after undergoing surgery on a knee problem on Wednesday," read a statement on PSV's official website.

"The PSV forward suffered cruciate ligament injury and damage in PSV's 1-6 league win over NAC Breda on 22 December.

"Narsingh underwent surgery in the Bergman Clinic in Naarden on Wednesday afternoon. The 22-year-old will now start a long structured rehabilitation programme."
