Raphael Varane has surgery on his right knee

279591_heroaRaphael Varane, center back for Real Madrid, has had reconstructive surgery on his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

The Frenchman was making a tackle early in the match against Espanyol and appeared to land wrongly. He was helped off the field in the 19th minute, and his team went on to draw 1-1.

“I am sad!” He posted on his Twitter account after the match. “The tests today have revealed an injury to the meniscus. They are going to operate on me as soon as possible.” The 20 year old has appeared in 33 matches for Los Blancos this season, and has played well while sending Pepe to the bench.
