Angola's Pedro Mantorras has been operated on again

Angola striker Pedro Mantorras faces three months on the sidelines because on an ankle injury.

The 25-year-old, who plays for Portuguese side Benfica, has been forced into surgery after suffering the injury on Sunday.

He will miss his country's final African Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya in Nairobi next month.

According to Benfica's Spanish coach Jose Antonio Camacho, Mantorras will be out for three months after the surgery.

The Angolan has had several operations on his troublesome knee since 2002.

"He's going to do some work until he is fully recovered," Camacho said.

Camacho has moved quickly to bring in forward reinforcements with Uruguay internationals Cristian Rodriguez and Maximiliano Pereira arriving in Lisbon Sunday night to take medicals on Monday.
