‘Real Madrid emergency’ key goalkeeper Courtois cruciate ligament rupture…surgery soon

By pestfood.com

Real Madrid have met with real bad news ahead of this season. Key goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is expected to miss this season.

Real Madrid announced on its official website on the 10th (Korean time) that Courtois was diagnosed with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Real Madrid added: “Courtois will undergo knee surgery in the next few days.” This makes Courtois difficult to see at the Santiago Bernabéu ground all season.

Anterior cruciate ligament rupture in the knee is a risk that not only soccer players but also most athletes who use their bodies are exposed to. Most of them occur due to a sudden change of direction or poor ground conditions, but there are also cases where they occur due to collisions with players. 

For most cruciate ligament ruptures, the treatment period is determined according to the severity, and it is a serious injury that takes from a minimum of 3 months to a maximum of 10 months. Nam Tae-hee, who suffered a cruciate ligament rupture during a match A in November 2018, returned after a rehabilitation period of nearly 7 months, and Juventus legend Claudio Marchisio suffered a cruciate ligament rupture during a match in 2016 and returned after 6 months of rehabilitation. made a comeback

However, the most frightening thing about cruciate ligament injuries is that most players experience a decline in their performance after the injury. Redamel Falcao was unable to maintain his peak performance for long due to three cruciate ligament ruptures, and Iker Muniain suffered a fairly terrifying injury along with his Achilles tendon to the extent that the cruciate ligament injury turned him from a top prospect to a mediocre player. is a ligament rupture

Medical officials believe that a cruciate ligament injury could affect Courtois’ career in the long run, as Courtois is a goalkeeper who uses agility and reflexes as a weapon.스포츠토토

Moreover, since the transfer to Real Madrid in 2018, Courtua’s injury, which has played in 230 games and has been a built-in mainstay, puts Real Madrid in an emergency situation where it has to find a vacancy for Courtua.
