Ukrainian midfielder English football club “West ham” and the national team of Ukraine Andriy Yarmolenko had an operation in London.
Today, 22 October, in the morning in one of the elite London clinics Andriy Yarmolenko had the surgery. Doctors hope that it went successfully, according to zbirna.com.
The trauma of the football player in the first half of the Saturday match of the Premier League “West ham – Tottenham”, commented one of the best specialists of Ukraine in the field of sports medicine Leonid Mironov.
“The exact details of the damage Andriy Yarmolenko is unknown to me. But the rupture of Achilles is one of the most severe injuries in football. Much depends on the specific location of the gap. Assuming voiced in England, the timing of recovery in this situation is corrupt, if I may say so, not the most difficult part of Achilles. The operation itself, although it, too, is important, not the complicated procedure. Much more important is the rehabilitation process after it.
As far as I know the recovery will take about six months, but we should not forget that then you will need to work on muscle mass in the calf, thigh and General functional state. I don’t want to make any predictions, but simply wish Andrew a speedy return to duty. It is important that he withdrew mentally,” said Mironov.
This season, Yarmolenko has played in ten matches in all competitions (six in the base) and scored two goals.
