Gomez’ surgery a success
Earlier today Mario Gomez successfully underwent surgery to remove loose bodies from his left ankle.
Doc Müller-Wohlfahrt says that Gomez will have to wait three weeks until he can practice again. He’ll then probably need another week or two to regain complete fitness, meaning you should expect him to return in early/mid September, just in time for the first Champions League group match.
Mario Gomez: “I am happy that the surgery went well, that the pain is gone. Now I have to be patient for a bit, then I’ll work very hard to be fit enough to play as soon as possible.”
