The Brazilian international (1 selection) suffers “a left knee sprain with anterior cruciate ligament injury” according to a press release from AS Monaco. Although no length of unavailability has been communicated, it is already certain that the 26-year-old defender will be absent for several weeks.
With four assists in six league matches this season, Caio Henrique is one of the big men in Monaco’s successful start to the year (4th, 2 points behind leader Brest). But the Brazilian has just suffered a serious setback.
He was seriously injured in the left knee on Friday at the end of the match against Nice. He injured himself on a rebound after a clearance. The action took place in the 50th minute. He regained his place before leaving in the 81st minute.
The first examinations taken at the start of the week revealed that the defender suffered a “left knee sprain with anterior cruciate ligament injury” according to a medical press release published this Tuesday by the ASM.
The club specifies that additional examinations are underway but it has already been noted that the player will miss several weeks of competition.
