Filiadis Luis, one of the most promising youngsters at Real Madrid, has suffered another setback to his career after being forced to undergo surgery on his right ankle.
The Argentina international, who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon, was forced to have surgery on Thursday night after suffering a torn tendon in his right leg during a training session in Boca Juniors’ training ground.
The operation was performed by doctors at Madrid’s Santiago Biomedical Center.
“The surgery was successful and the tendon was repaired,” Luis’ agent Fernando Márquez said.
“It was the first surgery he underwent in his career.
It was a successful surgery and he feels better now.”
The 22-year-old will now be sidelined for three months, having missed all of last season after tearing a ligament in his left ankle.
“He’s not going to be able to play for a while.
The rehabilitation process will take place and he will have to undergo another surgery.
This will be the first of a series of surgeries that will make sure that the injury doesn’t become an issue in the future,” Máridos added.
Máríos added that Luis is looking forward to being back on the pitch and has no plans to withdraw from the competition.
“Filiadises will be out for a couple of weeks,” he said.
“I’m happy for him and he’ll come back.
He’ll have a long recovery and I’m happy he’ll be back.
I’m really happy about it.”
