Ter Stegen, to the operating room: between three and four months off

The German goalkeeper will undergo an intervention this Tuesday to solve his problems in the patellar tendon in his right leg. It could come back in late November in the best of times.


The German goalkeeper, Marc André Ter Stegen, has decided to put an end to the discomfort that he has been dragging in the patellar tendon in his right leg and will undergo surgery this Tuesday. A decision that we at AS already advanced three weeks ago and that finally the German goal has fully assumed after the end of the season, aware that the situation could only get worse in the future.

Ter Stegen has taken so long to make a decision because he knows perfectly that after the operation he will need a period of three to four months to be in perfect condition. This means that in the best case scenario, the German goalkeeper would be available in mid-November.

A situation that had been pushing him back and especially after the coronavirus pandemic that delayed all deadlines. His initial idea was to have surgery in July as soon as the Eurocup ended, so it would be more or less at the beginning of October. However, now the terms have been lengthened and it will not be until well into the month of November.

A new setback for FC Barcelona and the new coach, presumably Ronald Koeman, who will have to face this setback, with the presence of the Brazilian Neto and the goalkeepers of the subsidiary Peña and Tenas.

Doctor Ramon Cugat will be the one who operates on Ter Stegen and later a statement will be offered on the diagnosis and prognosis of the injury.
