Ter Stegen is serious: KO for the Super Cup

first_imgFor now, and Although there are voices in the medical body of Barça that recommend that the goalkeeper pass through the operating room, that end is not in the head of the goalkeeper or the medical body. “I do not know. I am not a doctor. But we have not spoken in those terms (technicians, player and doctors). Our idea is that the discomfort is remitting. We have not gone to that extreme,” said the technician at the press conference. At the moment, it is the moment of Neto, which will debut in LaLiga. Except for surprise, Marc-André Ter Stegen will not only be down for Saturday’s match against Espanyol, but he will also not be in the Spanish Super Cup that is played since January 8 in Saudi Arabia. The German, with a tendinopathy in the right knee, follows a conservative treatment to avoid the operating room. Valverde admitted, as he was singing, that player and medical body reached an agreement to stop at Christmas.Barça played their last game of 2019 on December 21 and the plan was for Ter Stegen to rest against Espanyol and, with three weeks off, get healthy to the Super Cup. But the problem is that the treatment is not working as well as expected. It goes slow and It has been concluded that it is better to wait for the Supercup to pass and for Ter Stegen to return against Granada on January 19, when a month has passed since the last game.last_img read more
