The season is over for Rafael Defendi. The Farense goalkeeper was seriously injured in the ankle, and will undergo surgery "in the next few days".
According to a source from Farense, Defendi "has contracted a fracture in his left ankle (tibial malleolus)."
After being operated on, the goalkeeper will have a «recovery of at least 3 months, which means he will be off the pitch until the end of the season».
Defendi has been the usual goalkeeper for Farense, in the Algarve's return to the XNUMXst League. The Angolan Hugo Marques will replace the goalkeeper, who came from Famalicão to Farense.
