Mystakidis Out for Six Months
The worst feared scenario came true for Giannis Mystakidis as he was diagnosed with a total medial meniscus rupture and an anterior cruciate ligament rupture, leaving him out for six months.
Giannis Mystakidis, who has had a great season with PAOK, will be out for six months after he was diagnosed with a total medial meniscus rupture and an anterior cruciate ligament rupture on his knee. Mystakidis had surgery and is now hoping for a speedy recovery from the injury.
Mystakidis suffered the injury in Sunday’s league fixture against Larissa. The 23-year old has played in 31 matches this season for PAOK, 17 as a starter, while scoring six goals. Mystakidis’ good showings with PAOK also caught the eyes of Greek National Team coach Michael Skibbe although he did not receive a call-up for Greece’s match against Belgium last week.
With a post on Facebook, Mystakidis said that he will return stronger than before and thanked PAOK, his doctors, and everyone who continues to support him.
