Roma's Cristian Chivu will be out for the rest of the season.Roma's Cristian Chivu requires surgery that will keep him out for the rest of the season.
The Romanian star has been out since the summer with a fractured metatarsal, and has already undergone an operation to correct the problem.
However, the player has now been informed that a second procedure is necessary to put a pin in the bone after it failed to meld.
Chivu is not expected to return before April, and his injury is a fresh blow to beleaguered coach Luigi Delneri.
Delneri has already bemoaned the lack of key players through medical problems, as a miserable season for Giallorossi shows no sign of abating.
