Fabio Aurelio could be set to miss just a month of action after injuring himself while on holiday in Brazil with his family, Rafael Benitez has said.

Benitez confirmed the left-back had undergone cartilage surgery after damaging his knee.

“He was injured playing with his son and really disappointed because he was enjoying the summer,” Benitez said.

“He had the operation – he has had a problem with his cartilage – so he will be one month, maximum two months, not six months like I see in the press.”

Left-back Fabio Aurelio became the first Brazilian to sign for Liverpool in July 2006.

The number 12 has immense technical ability but his Anfield career has so far been blighted by injury.

Aurelio came through the ranks at Sao Paulo, making his first-team debut in 1997.

He represented Brazil at U17, U20 and U21 level, as well as at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

The defender moved to Spanish side Valencia in 2000, working under manager Hector Cuper for a year until Rafa Benitez took the reins.

The 2001-02 season saw Aurelio help Valencia win their first title in 31 years.

From there he established himself as one of La Liga’s best left-backs, bagging 10 goals during the 2002-03 campaign…http://www.onsouthindia.com
