Following a serious injury in his left knee earlier this week, Oscar Ustari’s surgery on his knee was successful. He’ll be out of action at least for 6 months.
Ustari was playing for Club Atlas in Mexico’s Liga MX against Tigres UANLE. Injury occured when he punted the ball forward, shifting his weight to his standing left leg, causing his knee to pop out of place. The Argentina international immediately collapsed to the floor and frantically screamed for medical assistance
