Madrid’s keeper Courtois has new knee surgery

He will start the recovery process in the next few days.

Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has undergone successful surgery this morning for a tear in the internal meniscus of his right knee.

The Belgian goalkeeper, who was close in the final stretch of his recovery after tearing his left knee ACL on the 10th of August, has suffered a new injury. Courtois tore the meniscus in his right knee in last Tuesday’s training session. This setback in his recovery will sideline him from the football pitch for another two months.

The operation carried out by the club’s Medical Services was the surgical removal of a small part of the torn meniscus to restore normal mobility to the affected knee by completely unblocking it. This decision, which ruled out suturing, which was the most aggressive option, will keep the goalkeeper out of action for 6-8 weeks. Everything will depend on the percentage of the meniscus that has been removed and how it overlaps with the recovery of the other knee.

“Thank you all for your messages. Sad about an injury that is just a small setback that will make me come back much stronger. Feeling your support makes me feel much better”, said the Belgian goalkeeper in his latest Instagram post.
