Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has issued an update on his injury to his fans via social media.
The Wales international shared a photo of himself following an operation on his right ankle. Bale also included the following caption alongside his photo, “Thanks for all the messages! Ankle is feeling ok. I’ll be doing everything I can to get back on the pitch asap.”
Bale will be out for approximately four months following surgery on his ankle according to the BBC.
The 27-year-old was taken off during Tuesday’s 2-1 Champions League win at Sporting Lisbon with what has been diagnosed as a “traumatic dislocation of the peroneal tendons” in his right ankle.
