Chennaiyin FC’s Dhanpal Ganesh undergoes surgery on his left knee

Chennaiyin FC

Chennaiyin FC midfielder Dhanpal Ganesh successfully underwent surgery on his left knee at the Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education & Research’s Centre for Sports Science (CSS) in Chennai. The 27-year-old had sustained a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

Ganesh will be ruled out for several months and continue his recovery and rehabilitation at CSS.

The CFC No. 17 was a vital cog in last season’s ISL winning team, making 17 appearances in the heart of midfield and scoring two goals. The first of which was the winner in a 2-1 away victory over Bengaluru FC during the league stage and the other coming in a 3-0 semi-final second-leg win over FC Goa at home.

Everyone at Chennaiyin FC wishes Ganesh a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him return to the football pitch as soon as possible.
