Energie Cottbus defender Vragel da Silva will miss the start of the Bundesliga season due to a knee injury.

The 34-year-old had been complaining of a knee problem during pre-season training and, on Wednesday, was forced to leave their training camp to undergo surgery.

He is likely to be sidelined for six weeks, although losing Da Silva for such a long time is no strange occurrence in Cottbus.
