VfL Wolfsburg confirmed on Monday that shoulder surgery will end defender Maxence Lacroix's season.
After losing his spot in the starting XI, Lacroix recently found his way back into Kovac's good graces. The French talent started seven of the club's last nine league fixtures. Lacroix's ability to potentially transfer to another club during the coming offseason may adversely affect his chance to test the market. The defender remains under contract with Germany's green company team through 2025.
