Football: Galatasaray goalie to return to pitch
Fernando Muslera to play in Turkish Super Lig match against Yukatel Denizlispor next week, says team manager Fatih Terim
Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim announced Sunday that goalkeeper Fernando Muslera will return to playing.
In a postgame interview with beIN Sports Turkey, Terim said Muslera would make an appearance in next week's Super Lig match against Yukatel Denizlispor.
In June last year, the 34-year-old goalie collided with Caykur Rizespor's Czech forward Milan Skoda during a league match.
He sustained a tibula and fibula (tib-fib) fracture and immediately underwent surgery.
Muslera, an integral part of Galatasaray and a fan favorite, joined the Istanbul club in the summer of 2011.
He made 361 appearances for his club and has been a five-time Turkish champion with Galatasaray (2012, 2013, 2015, 2018 and 2019).
Muslera has also represented his native Uruguay 116 times since 2009.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form. Please contact us for subscription options.
