Darío Aimar will undergo surgery this Tuesday for the injury he suffered in his right knee. Last Saturday, the Barcelona Sporting Club defender had to leave the game after 79 minutes, when his team lost 2-1 (in the end they won 2-3) against Manta FC, at the Jocay stadium for the first date of LigaPro.
Aimar, 26, tried to stop a rival when he entered goalkeeper Javier Burrai’s small area. The struggle destabilized both and part of the tuna player’s body fell on the knee of the Canarian defender.
“The injury as such is part of the external collateral ligament; Much beyond the entire injury such as bone contusion, the meniscus and ligamentous compromise is also somewhat compromised, which is important, ”commented Andrés Arce, doctor of the bullfighters, in a video published on the social networks of the Guayaquil institution.
“The arthroscopy will see some other element that is compromised and that will also define the recovery time (at least six months will be off the court),” he added.
The first and part of the second stage of LigaPro will be lost; and also the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, to which Barcelona was classified as national champion.
In 2018, Aimar underwent surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The injury was detected when the player traveled to Brazil to undergo medical check-ups prior to joining Inter de Porto Alegre. (D)
