Midfielder Dani Ceballos injured his left ankle in the Olympics opener against Egypt and on Tuesday we finally learned the extent of the damage from the club’s official medical report:
“Two ligament ruptures on the lateral (exterior) face of Dani’s ankle”
In the following video, I explained the details of the injury, including basic anatomy, the severity of the injury, a potential return schedule for the Spain midfielder, and two key things that medical staff and Madrid’s fitness team will focus on moving forward – both during the rehab process and upon his return to the pitch.
If anything changes or if we receive any updates during her physiotherapy and / or return to play process, I will make sure to keep you posted on the latest developments.
