Brazilian midfielder Lucio faces a battle to save his career after picking up a horrific injury in Hertha Berlin´s 1-0 defeat to Schalke on Friday night.

The 28-year-old got his foot caught in the Arena AufSchalke pitch and twisted his knee so badly that his cruciate knee ligaments, patella tendon and meniscus were all badly damaged.

He underwent surgery in Austria on Saturday and will not be allowed to return to Germany for five more days.
