Napoli defender Natan has undergone a specialist consultation showing a serious dislocation of the clavicle, which will prevent him from playing for over a month.

The Brazilian fell awkwardly in the final minutes of the pre-Christmas defeat by Roma and was initially diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder. However, yesterday he was visited by a specialist from the Villa Stuart clinic in Rome, who confirmed a dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint. The club press release states that he will be reassessed in a month, so it is likely that he will have the area immobilized for three weeks and then see if that has been enough to heal. As the damage is confirmed as type III, this may not be enough, and the prospect of surgery is still on the table, depending on the state of the ligaments.
