Footballer Valon Behrami Hoping To Avoid Surgery

As of Friday January 10th, Napoli and Switzerland midfielder Valon Behrami was thinking he would be out of action for six weeks after having an operation on a toe injury. 
At the time, he said on the Swiss Football Association's website, "I've had this pain for a month now. Over the last few days the pain has gotten worse and for that reason I've decided to undergo an operation.
"However, I will return within six weeks."
But last Monday the 14th, the story had changed. Napoli denied that Behrami was set for surgery, saying in a statement on their website, "SSC Napoli, in agreement with Valon Behrami, communicate that the player will have further consultations with a world famous specialist to see if he will need an operation on his foot or not." 
SkySports reported that he would have further tests in ten days time as he continued therapy on his toe. The hope was that he could avoid surgery. 
The 28 year old underwent tests in Barcelona last Monday and was given a specific treatment that would be reviewed this week. 
"We have pinpointed the problem," Behrami told "I will do all that I can to avoid surgery.
"I am confident to have a good recovery, led by the Napoli staff. After 10 days I will be more positive and optimistic."
The Swiss International has been suffering with a recurring toe problem throughout the season. He is scheduled to be included in Switzerland's World Cup squad this summer and has made 14 appearances for Napoli this season.
