Malaga defender Weligton has successfully undergone an operation on his broken collarbone and is set to be sidelined for two months.

The 33-year-old Brazilian suffered the injury during the first half of Malaga's pre-season friendly against Aston Villa earlier this month following a collision with the Premier League club's striker Christian Benteke, who scored twice for the home side in a 3-2 win at Villa Park.

A statement on Malaga's official website: "Malaga's Weligton underwent surgery today at Barcelona's Hospital Quiron.

"The 'Malaguista' will remain at the Hospital Quiron in Barcelona for the next 24-48 hours. A recovery time of two months has been estimated by medics."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
