Real Madrid announce Thibaut Courtois tore his left ACL in training and will undergo surgery

REAL MADRID SUFFERED A HUGE BLOW on the eve of the new La Liga season on Thursday when goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during training.

The 31-year-old Belgian international faces a lengthy layoff and will need surgery in the coming days, according to his club.

“After the tests carried out on our player Thibaut Courtois, he has been diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee,” Madrid said in a statement.

The club did not specify how long Courtois will be out but reports in Spain suggest he will miss most of the season, if not all of it.

Courtois suffered the injury during a morning training session and left in tears, according to Cadena Cope radio.

He will be replaced in the team by Ukraine’s Andriy Lunin, with Madrid due to play Athletic Bilbao on Saturday in their first game of the season.

Courtois joined Madrid from Chelsea after the 2018 World Cup, helping the club to a pair of La Liga crowns and last year’s Champions League title.
