Florian Lejeune had surgery on his left knee performed in Rome this week by Professor Paolo Mariani who did a great job last summer with the same operation on the other knee.
The Rome-based specialist had Lejeune back ready to play in about four months after his first Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury.
We hope Florian can make just as good a recovery this time around.
And players do come back stronger after the operation these days – it’s not just a throw-away line.
Florian Lejeune – vows to come back stronger
Rafa gave a positive update in his press conference yesterday, and it’s good news for the French center-back,
This is what Rafa said:
“He had the operation,” Everything has gone well, and as we were expecting.”
“The timescale is that we will see how he’s progressing in a couple of months, and see how long he will take.”
“We have to give him time.”
“We sent him to Rome to a specialist, and he did a great job. He did a great job with the other knee.”
“He has already started his rehabilitation, so hopefully, it will be quite quick.”
“We were doing our research about injuries after an operation, and if you have both knees, the stats say it will be very hard for him to have the same injury.”
“Now he should be stronger.”
Florian has vowed to come back stronger after his rehabilitation.
We believe him – and best of luck to the courageous Frenchman.
