SAO PAULO - Santos midfielder Paulo
Henrique Ganso will have surgery on his left knee on Saturday
and will be out for six months, the club said.
Ganso, who made his Brazil debut in a 2-0 friendly win over
United States this month, damaged his anterior cruciate
ligament and cartilage during Wednesday's Brazilian
championship match against Gremio.
"Recovery will take about six months. He'll start
physiotherapy on Monday," club doctor Rodrigo Zogaib told the
Santos website on Thursday.
The 20-year-old Ganso and teenager Neymar, who turned down
a 20 million euro offer from Chelsea, helped
Santos win two titles in the first half of the season - the
Paulista (Sao Paulo) state championship and the Copa Brasil.
