Elvis Upbeat Despite Injury

Sydney FC attacker Elvis Kamsoba is set for a minimum of six weeks on the sideline after scans confirmed that he had suffered an MCL injury.

Sydney FC Head Coach Steve Corica revealed the Sky Blues frontman will see a specialist tomorrow.

“He has a medial cruciate ligament rupture and will undergo an exploratory surgery which will determine the extent of the injury,” he said.

“The surgeon will decide whether to carry out further surgery and repair the ligament or whether the damage is in a good enough position to heal naturally.

“His length on the sidelines will be dependent on the outcome of that surgery and could be at least six weeks.”

Kamsoba is remaining upbeat about the injury and is disappointed that this has happened after his strong start for the club.

“I was defending a corner early on and the ball was kicked into me which stretched my knee. It was quite unlucky. I tried to play on and continue but I wasn’t pressing and helping the team as much as I could so I knew I had to come off.

“The physios knew here straight away that it was an MCL injury and once I had my scans they knew I had to see a specialist.

“I’m disappointed with how it’s happened especially after my strong start for this club and the team, however, I’m determined to be back as quickly as possible and help the boys to a strong finish to the end of the season.”
