Right-back Wague suffered a ruptured patellar tendon as well as the lateral, posterior and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee after a heroic last-minute punt on the goal line against Aris.
The 22-year-old’s knee was shattered as he crashed into the post on his punt, the moment in the 59th minute keeping PAOK in a fight in the Greek tie, but they lost 1-0.
Wague, who was sent on loan to PAOK in the summer, had to be postponed as a result, this heartbreaking blow has marked the end of the ace’s encouraging loan period.
Sport reports that the Senegalese international’s return to Barcelona for surgery is in the works, with Greek sources suggesting a minimum of a full year on the sidelines.
However, in disturbing news, some have claimed that the injury could end Wague’s professional career with doubts that he will be able to play at the highest level after such a blow.
Wague joined Barcelona in the summer of 2018, the setback may well destroy the cash-strapped Catalan team’s chances of selling the ace as well, as Sports world Inform that the loan included a permanent option.
