Tiger Fight, October 11th Leverkusen, Colombian right back Arias, who was loaned from Atletico Madrid this summer, suffered a serious injury in a recent national team game.
Leverkusen has now confirmed that Arias, who has injured his fibula and ankle, will take a truce for 6 months and will undergo surgery. His loan period is only one year.
Leverkusen’s director Rolfess said: “We feel sorry for this terrible injury, which touches all of us. Arias is a good man and came to us with ambition. This is a huge thing for him. Strike, we will, like Atletico, do our best to help him in his comeback, and he will get a good recovery treatment in Leverkusen."
Arias himself said: “I can’t describe how I feel. If I say I’m okay, then I must be lying, but I don’t want to say anything else. I’m very frustrated about this. It’s another time for me. With the new test, I will return stronger, and I promise to work hard to come back and fight again for Colombia and Leverkusen as soon as possible."
