Roma’s Rick Karsdorp has suffered a knee injury that has forced him to undergo surgery, the club confirmed via statement.
“Rick Karsdorp underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee today, with subsequent meniscal sutures, following a medial meniscus tear”.
“The surgery, carried out by Professor Georg Ahlbäumer at the Klinik Gut in St. Moritz, in the presence of AS Roma First Team’s doctor Vincenzo Costa, was completed successfully. The footballer will remain in the Swiss clinic for a few days and will soon start his rehabilitation protocol”.
As reported by Il Corriere dello Sport, Karsdorp felt some pain during the game against Real Sociedad in the Europa League last Thursday and the exams showed a situation that required a surgery.
There are no official details about the timetable of his recovery but it is possible that Karsdorp could be sidelined until the end of the season.
In the best case scenario, he could be back in action in May when Roma hope to be still in contention for a Champions League spot and in Europa League’s semifinals.
It’s the second surgery within a few days for Karsdorp as last Saturday he underwent surgery to reduce the fracture of his nasal bones.
