AEK’s Lambropoulos Ruptures ACL
AEK’s Vassilis Lambropoulos was diagnosed with a ruptured ACL after suffering the injury in Thursday’s Superleague match against Platanias.
The worst feared scenario for Vasilis Lambropoulos was confirmed in today’s medical tests where the AEK defender was diagnosed with a ruptured ACL. The injury is expected to leave Lambropoulos sidelined for six months. There is also fear that he might have ruptured his meniscus, which would leave him out even longer. He is expected to have surgery on Saturday.
Lambropoulos suffered the injury in AEK’s Superleague fixture away to Platanias on Thursday. Many of his teammates, the club, and other Superleague clubs have expressed their support and healthy recovery to the 27-year old.
Lambropoulos is one of many Greek players that have suffered a season-ending knee injury this year including Nikos Karelis (Genk), Dimitris Kolovos (Mechelen), and most recently Giannis Mystakidis of PAOK.
