Adelaide United advises forward, Al Hassan Toure, has successfully undergone surgery on his right ankle today.
The Club’s Director of Football, Bruce Djite, said: “Al Hassan has suffered significant damage to his right fibula and syndesmosis.
“On Friday evening, Al Hassan was training with our Youth Team and landed awkwardly on his ankle, after contesting a header.
“This injury setback is another challenge for Al Hassan, especially following the stress fracture he suffered to the second metatarsal in his right foot in January.
“We all saw how strongly Al Hassan returned from that injury and we are all confident he can do the same this time.
“Al Hassan has the full support of everyone at the Club and we will be with him right through his recovery.”
Club Doctor, Dr James Ilic, said: “Al Hassan saw surgeon, Dr Ben Beamond, today and Dr Beamond advised surgery was the best course of action.
“Dr Beamond has been the Club’s chosen surgeon for other ankle injuries and we trust his professional opinion in this instance as well.
“We expect Al Hassan to be fully recovered from the injury and surgery in three months’ time.”
