Real Madrid Goalkeeper Courtois Has ACL Surgery Amid Injuries
Real Madrid's goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has recently undergone surgery to address a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee, as reported by the LaLiga club on Thursday.
The 31-year-old Belgian endured an emotional departure from the practice field a week ago, as an MRI scan confirmed the extent of the ACL tear, prompting tears of disappointment.
Real Madrid shared that Courtois will commence his process of recovery in the forthcoming days, indicating their commitment to supporting his rehabilitation journey.
Notably, Courtois is not the only casualty in the squad. Eder Militao, a defender for Real, has also fallen victim to an ACL injury, further emphasizing the team's challenges. Additionally, Arda Guler, a recent addition to the team's roster, underwent knee surgery during this week.
Carlo Ancelotti's team is slated to face Almeria on Saturday in what will be their second LaLiga fixture of the season. As they navigate these injuries, Real Madrid aims to overcome obstacles and perform resiliently on the pitch.
