Galatasaray injury. Yuto Nagatomo suffered collapsed lung

Japanese star Yuto Nagatomo has been added to the ever-growing injury list at Galatasaray.

Galatasaray are going through an injury crisis and Yuto Nagatomo is one of the latest names to add to Fatih Terim’s worries.

The full-back suffered a collapsed lung during Galatasaray’s Champions League clash with Schalke 04 earlier last week.

He has since been operated on and his treatment is being overseen by club doctor Yener Ince. Yuto’s expected to spend 3-4 days in the hospital, Liv Hospital in Istanbul, before being discharged.

The 32-year-old took to his Twitter account to thank the Galatasaray fans for their support.

The Lions are currently experiencing a terrible run of injuries with Eren Derdiyok, Serdar Aziz, Feghouli, Fernando, Onyekuru and Emre Akbaba all out injured, in addition to Nagatomo.

Fatih Terim is sure to have a selection headache for their upcoming Istanbul derby against heated rivals Fenerbahce in their next Super Lig fixture.
