Victim of a rupture of the cruciate ligaments of the left knee contracted on April 16, 2021 on the ground of Lille (1-1), the central defender of Montpellier HSC Pedro Mendes has still not made his return with the professional group of Olivier Dall’Oglio. If he knew the grounds with the reserve last December, the Portuguese international (1st selection) gave his news this Friday on his Instagram account, announcing that his return to Ligue 1 at La Paillade will be later than expected. .
“The operation that took place on May 3 went well. I was able to regain a taste for competition, last December with the reserve. Unfortunately, rehabilitation does not go as planned. Today I am not ready. I’m not at 100% and I refuse to resume being at 60% of my abilities. To tell you that everything is fine would be to lie to you. Sometimes I doubt, sometimes I hope but I hang on. The support of my family, my friends, my club, the supporters is very precious to me and I take this opportunity to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I take the time to get back into shape by being strong in the head and very determined! It’s not the victory that makes a man beautiful, it’s the fight. Thanks again to everyone”he said on his social networks.
