Latics Confirm Ivan Ramis Out For Season
Latics have received the worse news possible regarding influential defender Ivan Ramis, he will be out for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee
The 28 year old was carried off the field on a stretcher on Saturday, close to the end of the Premier League game with Fulham, it was obvious that he was highly distressed after challenging for a ball, his knee buckled sideways and the big Spaniard was left writhing in agony
Speaking about Ramis, Latics boss Roberto Martinez said - 'Nothing can disguise the fact this is a massive blow because Ivan is a key member of the group but we are relieved that the injury is not as severe as we feared it could have been.
'The most important thing now is to think of Ivan's welfare, get the operation completed, and for him to begin his rehabilitation.
'Ivan is a very strong and positive character and he is determined to return to fitness as soon as he can.
'He will receive the best possible medical rehabilitation as the club ensures to have him return as an even stronger footballer.'
A massive blow for both the player and the club, get well soon Ivan
