Mateu Morey spoke up after his injury in Borussia Dortmund’s 5-0 win in the DFB Cup semi-final against Holstein Kiel. The 21-year-old Spaniard was surprisingly positive again.
“I’m sorry to have surgery and will work hard to come back stronger. The road to recovery begins today,” Morey wrote on Twitter. He posted a picture that shows him smiling and lying on the sofa with his thumb up.
It is still not clear how severe the knee injury actually is. A diagnosis will probably be made on Monday at the earliest.
Licensed player director Sebastian Kehl spoke on Sunday in One-two from a “severe ligament and capsule injury”. In addition, Kehl said: “Further examinations will take place today and tomorrow. Unfortunately, the boy will be out for a long time.”
