Successful surgery of Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen


Spanish soccer club Barcelona announced on Tuesday that its German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has undergone knee surgery and will be out of action for ten weeks.

The club said in a statement that Ter Stegen, who had been suffering from ligament problems in his right knee, had undergone a “successful surgery” by the club’s doctor, Ramon Cugat, and that he would be out for about two and a half months.

Ter Stegen, 28, will be absent from Barcelona at the start of the new season in Spain, whose competitions will start on September 12th.

It is widely expected that Barcelona will announce the appointment of Ronald Koeman as technical director of the team to succeed Kiki Setien, who was sacked Monday after Barcelona’s humiliating defeat by Bayern Munich 2-8 last Friday in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
