Some players are more than unlucky as far their injuries are concerned, especially if they are in young age and just missed the world cup. Yes, you guessed it right; we are talking about Spanish player Thiago Alcântara who plays for Bayern Munich. Knowingly, he missed the world cup for his knee injury and again damaged his knee ligament in the training last week. It is the third time, he got the specific area damaged and assumingly doctor could advise him another lengthy sideline. His injury is following him since last season when he first damaged knee ligament during Bayern’s clash with Hoffenheim back in March and then he saw further recurrence of the same injury during the world cup and had to be ousted from the whole event. Although, club has refused to reveal the severity of the injury but close sources have said that he could miss a long period since his knee is not in a right shape at the moment. What Bayern has said officially is he has suffered a partial tear which could require an operation without mentioning the timeframe he could be back in the field within.
Like any professional side, club sporting director Matthias Sammer has promised to offer any support to see him back in the game and said, “We are all shocked and saddened by his new injury. Thiago was so close to his comeback after all this time. But he knows Bayern are there for him. We will do everything so that he will get healthy again, and can win a lot of titles with us.” As far his replacement is concerned, Munich is having Franck Ribery and Rafinha back in the side for weekend game with the Werder Bremen.
Anyway, Thiago himself informed about this setback via a site post and said, “What can I say ? Of course, I am at the moment profoundly disappointed and desperate. Why always me ? But I will not give up . I will fight again. I ‘m going to get close again . And I will celebrate my comeback at Bayern.” Apart from this, he did not hint about the time he is going to take for recovery, but no worry, Bayern is known for support to players during needy days, hence we can expect his comeback very soon, however, he would have to earn the team space with a promising start after almost a year.
