Out since mid-November and since replaced by the young Inaki Pena, Marc-André Ter Stegen was forced to have back surgery in France, due to recurring lower back pain. At the end of last week, FC Barcelona gave news of its goalkeeper, affirming that his time on the billiards table had gone off without a hitch via an official press release. This Wednesday, the Spanish press revealed the duration of unavailability of the German international (38 matches).

Based on the words of Dr Amélie Léglise, in charge of the operation of the Barça goalkeeper, Mundo Deportivo reports that the latter will be absent for approximately two months. “Whether it’s a protrusion or a hernia, the downtime is more or less the same. It depends on the type of sport he does, but it’s about two months.underlined the French specialist before indicating that the risk of relapse for Marc-André Ter Stegen was “less than 3%”. “We did endoscopy by camera, it is an extremely precise technique which reduces the risk of operation as much as possible”she added during an interview at the microphone of “Què thi jugues”.
