Lengthy absence

Paulo Otavio sidelined with serious knee injury.

There was bad news for Paulo Otavio and VfL Wolfsburg after the Brazilian suffered a serious injury to his right knee during Saturday’s match against VfB Stuttgart. The left-back was forced off after 52 minutes and tests on Monday confirmed the severity of the injury. Otavio will undergo an operation in the coming days and will be out of action for the Wolves for a long period of time.

The 27-year-old made his comeback from an ankle injury in the Champions League match at Salzburg on 20 October, but now faces another unspecified spell on the sidelines.

We wish Paulo all the best for his operation and recovery.
