Thibaut Courtois, the goalie for Real Madrid, has revealed that he tore his ACL.
He was crying when he left training on Thursday after suffering the injury, which required medical testing.
He will have surgery after those tests revealed that he had damaged the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
A similar injury will keep the Belgian out for the bulk, if not the entire season.
With just a few days till the start of the new LaLiga season, Andriy Lunin is the only other senior goalkeeper still on staff.
Los Blancos will therefore probably have to turn to the transfer market to locate a successor.
