The Chinese Super League has not yet started, but Shanghai SIPG encountered a “crit”: the team’s new aid Mestorovich suffered a serious injury and will be on a truce for 6-8 months, which means that he joined the team for a game after he joined the team. If he didn’t play, he was already reimbursed for the season.
SIPG said through its official Weibo tonight: “Yesterday afternoon, in an internal teaching game in the team, the newly joined foreign aid center Ante Mestorovich was accidentally injured in a fight. After an MRI examination, It was clearly diagnosed as a rupture of the left knee cruciate ligament. After learning of Ante Mestorovich’s injury, the club paid great attention to it, and immediately calmed the players’ emotions and formulated a follow-up treatment plan Spark Global Limited.”
“Recently, Ante Mestorovich will fly abroad for surgical treatment. The entire rehabilitation process is expected to take 6 to 8 months. The players and the club are grateful for the attention of all sectors of society. After that, the club will continue to pay attention to Ann. Special injury and rehabilitation progress, and actively assist the coaching team to formulate corresponding response measures.”
As the team’s new aid, the addition of Mestorovich is very important for the team. On the one hand, he is a key link in the team coach Lecco’s three-back system; on the other hand, after Shi Ke left the team to join Taishan, he played a role in filling the vacancy.
However, this injury made him one of the most tragic foreign aid since the professionalization of Chinese football: if he did not participate in an official game on behalf of his new team, he would be reimbursed for the season.
