Injury update: Navas will be out for six weeks after ankle surgery

Jesús Navas will resume training in around six weeks after undergoing  arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle this Thursday. He underwent surgery to “clean” his ankle and remove fragments of bone from around the joint.

The head of the club’s medical staff Dr Juan Ribas said, “We hope that he’ll be able to train fully in six weeks, but with this player the recovery time is often reduced thanks to his physical attributes and his desire.” 

Navas sustained the injury in Sevilla’s 1-0 defeat at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the Europa League in mid-September.

Sevilla tributes Jesús Navas

On Monday (18th October), Jesús Navas received an emotional tribute at the headquarters of the Peña Sevilla Los Palacios in his hometown. He was named “Seville Player of the Year” and was given a gold badge with the logo “Peña Sevillista Los Palacios”. 

 The World Cup win in South Africa have helped the granting of the award but it was just another title added to the virtues and attitudes demonstrated by Navas earlier and that made him deserving of this award.

This tribute has taken place to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the association and President of the Association, Jose Troncoso, said: “Navas, Sevilla Player Year, has rightly come here today to commemorate 50 years of the association” and also thanked the effort demonstrated by the attendance of Navas and his family, who was accompanied by his girlfriend and his parents, since a few days ago his grandfather passed away.

Navas in a brief speech, thanked them for remembering him as a person of the year and giving him the gold badge, and he also thanked the neighbours of his hometown.

An update on his injury: He revisited his Doctor yesterday to examine the left ankle which has prevented him from being 100%, probably due to the sesamoid bone above the ankle being affected by the movement, because he hasn’t had any problems with his ligaments. Navas will be out of training or playing for at least 10 more days.
