Roy Keane has confirmed that Luciano Civelli could miss Ipswich's pre-season campaign as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

Keane revealed back in January that the player had been ruled out for the rest of the season but has now confirmed Civelli could be out for longer than first feared.

He told the Green Un: "Hopefully Luca will be back around September time. I've known players to be out two years and then come back strong."

The Argentine midfielder suffered multi-ligament damage against Burnley in March 2009 and has faced numerous setbacks on his road to recovery.
