Injury update: Grim news for the club as it has been confirmed through initial tests that Jesé suffered a complete tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee, effectively ending his season. As can be seen in the images above, Jesé attempted to get back up afterwards but had to be stretchered off.
According to Ginés Carvajal, Jesé’s agent, the player was in good spirits. A timeframe for recovery has yet to be discussed with doctors. Injuries of this nature typically require at least six months of recovery, and that seems to be the estimate most reports are expecting.
Jesé later tweeted thanks for the messages of support.
