Philippe Coutinho will be out for three months with Barcelona after his meniscus operation

BARCELONA – Philippe Coutinho underwent surgery this Saturday for the injury to the external meniscus of his right knee and after the intervention, the Barcelona medical services reported that the Brazilian footballer’s period of absence will be three months, with his reappearance not expected until April .

The player did not have a total meniscus tear, which is why Dr. Monllau, who directed the operation, resolved to rebuild the damaged meniscus, without having to suture it as feared and shortening the recovery time, which in the worst case scenario it would have been longer than four months.

Agreeing that the result of the operation was “satisfactory”, Coutinho will miss a minimum of twelve official matches (eight in the League, the two in the Champions League against PSG, one in the Cup and the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup against Real Sociedad) that could become five more if it qualifies for the final of the Super Cup and also for the final of the Copa del Rey, which could already be in a position to play it in April.

The optimistic forecast indicates that the Brazilian midfielder would be ready to visit Real Madrid in the Bernabéu League Classic on April 10 or 11 and a hypothetical knockout of the quarterfinals of the Champions League, whose first leg matches are due play between April 6 and 7.
