Lazio celebrated Brazilian defender Luiz Felipe’s 24th Birthday earlier today with a post on Instagram.

The Biancocelesti centre back, who is contracted to the Roman club until 2022, is still working on recovering from ankle surgery and has returned to Rome to work in the Formello Sports Centre.

Luiz Felipe is hoping to return next month, having underwent the surgery back in January.

The 24-year-old Brazilian has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 927 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist.
