The Barça keeper has been operated on by doctors Ulrich Boenisch and Ricard Pruna in Augsburg (Germany) for the anterior cruciate ligament tear he suffered last week. The knee’s internal cartilage has been sewn up and the operation was concluded successfully. Valdes will be out of action for approximately seven months.

Valdes suffered the injury in the first half of last Wednesday’s game against Celta at the Camp Nou and was immediately afterwards examined by doctors at a Barcelona hospital. Víctor Valdés has played 535 games for FC Barcelona and conceded just 441 goals.
