The medical staff of Al-Ittihad Club of Alexandria has decided that the Ivorian player Razak Cisse, the player of the leader of the gap, loaned from Zamalek, will undergo knee surgery next Sunday.
Mohamed Anan, the team’s doctor, had tried, through physical therapy, with the player to eliminate his undergoing surgery, but his failure to respond to the stage of physical therapy made him settle on undergoing surgery.
The player suffers from a stress fracture in the knee that needs a period of two to three months to be able to return to training normally.
Cisse had traveled to his country for a week on vacation and then returned to regular physical therapy, but the medical system preferred the final solution, which is surgery.
Cisse’s loan ends at the end of the season, but the board of directors hopes to reach a solution with the Zamalek administration, whether to buy Cisse permanently, or at least renew the loan for a season.
