Arsenal Women’s Swiss midfielder Malin Gut has ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament, the club has confirmed. Gut sustained the injury in training during last week.
The 20-year old Switzerland international signed for the Gunners from Grasshopper Zurich last summer, making seven starts and nine substitute appearances.
A statement on the Arsenal website read, “We are disappointed to confirm that Malin Gut has suffered a rupture to her anterior cruciate ligament in her knee.
“The injury occurred during a training session in the week and Malin has since been receiving specialist care. The operation will take place in the coming weeks, after which she will begin her rehabilitation programme immediately.”
Gut was heavily linked with a return to Grasshopper Zurich this summer due to homesickness but it’s currently unclear whether this injury would have impact on that situation.
All the best in your recovery, Malin.
