The worst omens are confirmed with the injury of the Nigerian striker

The worst omens were confirmed. Umar Sadiq has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. This has been confirmed by the Royal Society in an official statement at noon this Monday. This is what the text made public by the txuri-urdin club says: «Sadiq suffered a torsion in his right knee during the Getafe-RS match, held yesterday, 09-11-2022. The MRI done this morning shows a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. It is a subsidiary lesion of surgical treatment. In the next few days it will be reported. He begins treatment with physiotherapy and personalized work ».

This morning Umar Sadiq went to undergo medical tests at the Polyclinic accompanied by Dr. Javier Barrera, head of the Royal Society's medical services. Not even two weeks ago, the Nigerian successfully passed the medical examination in these same facilities. Now, fate has crossed his path and that of the txuri-urdin club.

It is the same injury that Mikel Oyarzabal suffered in March in a training session in Zubieta and that still keeps him away from the pitch. The same ailment that also affected Carlos Fernández in a pre-season match last year, in a clash played in the Netherlands.

La Real has already announced that the player will require surgical intervention. This will take place in the coming weeks. The estimated time off is between six and eight months off, so it is very difficult for the txuri-urdin footballer to play an official match before the 23/24 season.

This is the fourth serious injury suffered by the txuri-urdin squad in their offensive line in the last 14 months. The first was that of Carlos Fernández in the summer of 2021, the second that of Ander Barrenetxea in January 2022, and the third was that of the captain, Oyarzabal, in training in March.

Now, the star signing that came to replace Isak has been seriously injured at the first change and poses a new dilemma for the technical secretariat led by Roberto Olabe.
