Fernando Forestieri says surgery on his knee injury has gone well and that he is looking to return to fitness in the coming months.
The Wednesday striker was ruled out for at least three months when the injury was revealed recently and now Forestieri reports on his Instagram account:
‘After picking up a knee injury last season in March, I received the worst news that I might need surgery.
After several different opinions, it was decided to try to avoid surgery. After months of hard work in Spain, I managed to get back.
Unfortunately, at a recent training session, a new injury on the same knee happened. After seeing a specialist in London and Rome, both doctors advised now surgery is my only option.
I am upset but will come back stronger than ever and at my best! The op went well and I just want to thank all the loyal fans who support me, no matter what.
Wishing all the boys the best of luck. I will be supporting all the way!’
