The Colombian player underwent arthroscopic surgery to have calcification removed from his right knee.

A statement from Napoli read: "Today's surgery went well and Zuniga will be available in six to eight weeks' time."

The 27-year-old has made four league appearances for Napoli this season.

Napoli will also be without Uruguay defender Miguel Britos for a spell after he dislocated a collarbone in Friday's 2-0 defeat at Roma.

The Uruguay centre-back will be out for 20 days and will miss four Serie A games, including the match at Juventus on November 10.

Napoli are second in the standings, five points behind league leaders Roma, and host Torino on Sunday.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
