Adelaide United has confirmed today that midfielder, Nathan Konstandopoulos, has ruptured his left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during training on Monday morning.
Konstandopoulos, who successfully recovered from the same problem on his opposite side just this season, will undergo surgery today to begin repair of the injury.
“I know the process, I know the grind, I know that I will be back stronger again. Nobody works as hard as me and I will prove it again. See you again in 9 months better than ever,” Konstandopoulos wrote on Instagram.
Adelaide United’s Director of Football, Bruce Djite, said the injury news was “devastating” for Nathan and the Club.
“We saw how determined and professional Nathan is to return from such a major setback, and we are confident that he will return from this one,” Mr Djite said in a press release.
“Nathan will have our continued support as he begins his recovery and rehabilitation in a bid to return to football.”
