Terrible news for Saelemaekers: his World Cup seriously threatened

Alexis Saelemaekers is at high risk of missing the World Cup in Qatar. The former Anderlechtois was injured on Saturday during AC Milan’s trip to Empoli. When he found himself on the ground after half an hour of play, the winger had probably already understood what was happening to him. His knee was affected and the first examinations carried out this Sunday morning do not bode well.

According to his club, the player suffers from a partial tear in the medial collateral ligament. However, there is no question of carrying out surgery, since the medical staff of AC Milan have opted for conservative treatment. Its recovery time is estimated between 6 to 8 weeks.

Which means Saelemaekers shouldn’t be back on the pitch until at least mid-November. However, Roberto Martinez will announce his list for the World Cup at that time. And it would be unlikely that the coach would call up a player out of form and barely back from injury.
