Napoli defender Ghoulam has 3rd operation on right knee

NAPLES, Italy — Napoli full back Faouzi Ghoulam has had a third operation on his right knee but the Algeria international should be fit to take part in pre-season training.

Ghoulam missed most of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in November and fracturing his kneecap in training in February.

There were fears he had another problem after his knee swelled up on holiday recently and Ghoulam underwent further tests earlier this week.

On Wednesday Napoli says Ghoulam had "a small operation to remove the metal pin in his right patella."

It adds: "Ghoulam will follow a personalized training schedule next week."
