STATESIDE SURGERY FOR LEONARDO

Leonardo will go under the surgeon’s knife in Vail, Colorado (USA) the middle of next week. The striker opted for an operation on his torn ligament at the clinic of Richard Steadman. ‘This is what I feel best about. He has performed surgery on Ronaldo and Van Nistelrooy in the past and look how they are doing now. That gives me confidence and that is important at this stage.’

Feyenoord had advised the Brazilian to have the surgery at Rotterdam’s Erasmus Medical Centre. ‘So that we could monitor his rehab and any complications as well as possible,’ said club doctor Robbart van Linschoten. ‘But we did say immediately that he was completely free to choose. The most important thing is that he feels good about it. As soon as Leo said he wanted to go to Dr Steadman’s clinic we arranged it for him.’ Dr Richard Steadman has a great reputation in the world of sports. Besides Ronaldo and Van Nistelrooy, the doc also operated on Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Lothar Matthäus and Alessandro Del Piero, and tennis stars Martina Navaratilova and Monica Seles, among others.
