Will or will not David Beckham miss the World Cup? What are the results after his surgery? That is the same question the entire world is asking themselves, so what are the answers to those questions? Keep reading to know all the details, plus take a look at David Beckham’s photos and video below.
As you all know David Beckham broke his Achilles tendon during a game against Chievo Verona where his team for now, AC Milan, won 1-0. David wasn’t even hit, he had the ball and about to make a pass and felt pain. He made gestures so that the medical team could help him, in fact he tore his tendon. He was supposed to travel to Finland to get surgery by the hand of Dr. Sakari Orava, who is a specialist surgeon for these kind of injuries.
The world began to ask if he will miss the World Cup, this will be his fourth in a row, like us he certainly has all his hopes that he will recover in time.
“I am not guaranteed to go to South Africa at all, I’m going to have to work hard and hopefully win my place. There are a good few months left.” said David.
But AC Milan representatives think he might miss it, they already made the invitation to David to join them next year.
"He’ll probably be out for five or six months, I saw him really suffering. In the changing room I hugged him and told him that if he wants he can join us next year, too.” said AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani.
His team in the U.S, the Los Angeles Galaxy, are also worried and feel terrible for him.
"We just received the information about David’s unfortunate injury," MLS commissioner Don Garber said. "We wish him a speedy recovery."
Just last year he was wearing a walking boot this time on his right foot, due to several knocks had left his foot a bit sensitive so the boot was merely as a precaution.
We heard about his surgery results and evidently he will be out for about six months, his tendon completely torn and was fully repaired after his surgery made by Dr. Sakari Orava at at the Mehilainen clinic in Turku, Finland.
“He is doing well and the operation lasted just under an hour. It went very well, He will have to take it very easy during the next two to three weeks or a month, and then he will continue with a recuperation program slowly. The foot won’t take much strain for two to three months, four months to running and another two months before playing.” Said Dr. Orava.
David’s dream to participate for England at his fourth World Cup are gone, but he expressed how grateful he was to his fans for their warm wishes on his web page.
"I am upset but (want) to thank everyone for their messages of support. I hope to make a swift and full recovery."
He is expected to spend Monday night at the clinic and perhaps go home the next day, and about his teams, he will miss almost the entire MLS season, but he is expected to continue with Galaxy and already had the invitation to join Milan next year, we’ll have to wait for his recovery and his decision.
