The injury occurred last Wednesday, when Mantuan defended the Brazilian under-20 team in a training game against Corinthians’s under-23 team. He entered the second half and stayed for 25 minutes in the field until he felt the pain and left as a precaution.
On Thursday, the midfielder was evaluated by Joaquim Grava, Timão’s doctor, who confirmed the need for a surgical procedure.
