Alvaro Negredo out for rest of season

Besiktas striker Alvaro Negredo will miss the remaining Super Lig matches due to an injury.

Alvaro Negredo picked up an injury during the Galatasaray-Besiktas derby on Sunday and was taken off in the 35th minute of the match to be replaced by Jeremain Lens.

Unfortunately for him and Besiktas, the injury turned out to be more serious than initially thought. Negredo suffered a ruptured ligament in his left ankle and therefore will not partake in any of the club’s remaining matches this season.

The club made the announcement on their website;

“Alvaro Negredo, who was injured in the match against Galatasaray, was examined Acibadem Fulya Hospital after the match and according to the scans and MRI results, his left ankle ligament (deltoid ligament) has ruptured.”

The news couldn’t come at a worse time with Besiktas still in the title race.
