Blomqvist undergoes successful surgery

Rebecka Blomqvist’s operation for the cruciate ligament tear she sustained in September took place this week.

After suffering an ACL tear in her right knee in September, VfL striker Rebecka Blomqvist took an important step this week as she underwent successful surgery. The 26-year-old can now look forward to beginning her rehabilitation as soon as possible, although there’s still a long road ahead before she’ll be able to return to the pitch. For now, Blomqvist is promising her teammates at VfL Wolfsburg and in the Swedish national team one thing: “I’ll support you as much as I can from the sidelines!”

The striker’s treatment is happening in consultation with a specialist from Berlin. The operation has only taken place now because the medial collateral ligament was also affected by the injury.
