Further to injuring his right knee during Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, assessments and scans have confirmed that Granit Xhaka suffered a significant injury to his medial knee ligament.
A specialist consultation took place in London on Tuesday evening which has determined that Granit does not require surgery.
Granit’s recovery and rehabilitation programme will start immediately and we are aiming for him to be back in action in approximately three months.
Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Granit to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.
