Reports are out claiming that Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has avoided Achilles surgery.
His Costa Rica coach, Paulo Wanchope, said Navas might have to have an operation to fix the issue, but the 28-year-old custodian has now been told that will not need to be the case.
He tweeted after returning to Madrid for further tests: “Happy, thank God, the club doctors have assessed me in Madrid and have discarded an operation on the heel injury.”
He added later: “Today at Sanitas La Moraleja I received platelet-rich plasma treatment on the left heel. Now to rest.”
