Mauricio Pochettino confirms that Guly do Prado is likely to be out of action for two months following knee surgery.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that forward Guly do Prado is expected to be on the sidelines for two months.

The 31-year-old is due to undergo an operation next Wednesday in a bid to deal with a knee problem that he has been suffering with.

The Brazilian has not featured for the Saints since coming on as a substitute in his side's 2-0 win over Fulham on October 26.

Meanwhile, Pochettino has expressed his delight at forward Jay Rodriguez receiving a call-up to the England squad.
