Lampard to have hernia operation

Recommended Posts

Carlo Ancelotti revealed Frank Lampard will have a hernia operation this week following our 2-0 win over Stoke City.

The Italian explained the medical department tried to manage the problem during the week but after the player felt pain during today's game, and was substituted in the second-half, he will now have surgery.

The procedure is the same as Didier Drogba's recent hernia surgery, which saw the Ivorian striker back in training after only seven days. It does mean that Lampard will not go on international duty with England.

'He [Lampard] has a problem on his groin,' explained Ancelotti. 'He had the surgery ten years ago and this week was not very good. He also didn't feel well in the game.

'So the only solution is to have surgery this week, maybe he will do this Tuesday or Wednesday. It means he is not able to play for the national team.

'He'll be ready in one week or two weeks. We have experience because it is the same surgery as Drogba and Drogba took one week before he was able to train.

'It is not a big problem. It is very easy surgery but he needs it because he started to feel pain.'
