“It’s another road to recovery!” Gundogan issues injury update from hospital bed after surgery

Date Posted,December 22, 2016

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has issued an update from his hospital bed after undergoing knee surgery.

The German will miss the rest of the season after suffering the injury in the Blues’ win over Watford earlier this month.

He went down under a challenge from Nordin Amrabat in the 44th minute of the clash, leaving the action in tears.

It is the same knee that Gundogan dislocated in May, which delayed the £20million man’s City debut until September.

Gundogan uploaded a picture of himself smiling from his hospital bed with his leg in cast to his Instagram page.

He wrote: “Hi guys! I’m doing well and today’s surgery went fine. Now it’s another road to recovery.”

It is another big injury blow for the ex-Borussia Dortmund star, who had made 16 appearances for City this term.

He missed all but three games in the 2013-14 season due to a serious back injury, subsequently missing out on Germany’s World Cup success in Brazil.

The dislocated knee he suffered earlier this year saw him miss this summer’s European Championships too.

Boss Pep Guardiola admitted it was a blow for City to lose Gundogan, who was one of his top transfer targets in the summer.

“During the season sometimes it happens, this kind of situation happens,” said the Spaniard. “We are going to miss him, but now we will support him.

“I’m sure he is sad, but he will have an operation, come back here, see his teammates and train again.”
