NAC midfielder Mike Zonneveld will miss at least the next month of the season.NAC Breda have been dealt a blow with the news that influential midfielder Mike Zonneveld will miss at least the next month of the season after undergoing knee surgery.
The midfielder has been struggling with the problem for some time and a scan revealed damage to the meniscus in his knee.
A 'tidy-up' operation is believed to have passed off without a hitch and should allow Zonneveld to return in a month's time.
"I'm happy that they found something, because I was playing with pain since November," Zonneveld told the club's website.
Zonneveld watched the surgeons perform the operation on a monitor and he added: "At a certain moment they lost a really thin piece of the meniscus and they had to find it.
"You cannot leave it in, so that is why the operation took some time."
