I always feel like something like this is myth but 24 on 6 years is outrageous. Have we even had one in that time? I'm sure we must have but the most recent inter one I can think of off hand is Samuel maybe?


Edit oh viviano apparently did in 2011


Milito did his as well I believe in the Strama days when the whole team was getting injured

Wow, so we got a drunk who won't play and Roma received a cripple that can't play.

He's been a lot unlucky... another serious injury that can compromise his career i think.

No wonder Ausilio gave him away. He knew this guy is injury prone

Forget physically recuperating from a second ACL injury, it is even tougher to mentally recover from such a blow. He'll be playing at 80% confidence for the rest of his career.

Read on reddit that this is the 20th ACL tear for a Roma player since 2014. Hard to believe this is just bad luck. They are doing something wrong there.

Absolutely. He will be playing with this in his mind. The impact this shit has on your life. Crutches, can't bend your knee for weeks, its so shit. Then the comeback is so tricky.
He will be playing with fear I'd imagine quite largely. It's difficult going back into 50 50 challenges after that.

The last one I remember is Zanetti. Milito also tore his cruciate in the same season, but I don't remember if it was before or after Pupi

We’re better i guess, at least we know what we’re getting
Imagine being roma fans, their future captain, their hope, their new totti, and bang shit hits hard

Didn't Zanetti rupture the Achilles tendon?

Zanetti was an achilles which also is a terible injury

Zanetti came back though like a fucking champ even before the time they thought he would be gone.

Maybe he was already unintentionally leaning bit too much on the healthier leg only to fuck that one as well?

I assume though that medical treatment available for very rich people is quite different and advanced than what is commonly available.

Nah brother, knees are knees and two ruptures in a year are devastating. Medicine hasn't been able to mend some of the other rich boys in the game. There are also too many cases that beg to differ and not just in this sport. Unfortunately, he also has a very energetic and physical play style so his chances of going back to his outstanding form will be nothing short of a miracle at best. Well, I'd still take him off Roma for a MASSIVE discount if it ever came down to it :troll: and on that note, I wish him all the best in his recovery.

Yeah, I get it. Wishful thinking on my side I guess.

And then that piece of shit coach benched him for that RB that shouldn't be playing for any Serie F team

Most likely their medical staff is complete trash, including medical facilities, although on a long shot it could be a thing about their training ground and the way its built. Composition, grass, ground itself etc... that makes extra pressure on players knees.

I might be totally wrong here, but to my knowledge ACL has much less to do with that and much more in general with how prone a person is to knee injuries + also a lot of luck (or lack of it) is involved. I’ve seen terrible tackles with knees bending in crazy angles ending with footballers playing it off as if nothing happned, while I myself tore my ACL after a basic aerial duel and I landed just like any other day but still managed to tear my ACL and damage my meniscus. ACL tears can be totally random.

It's always scared me, for his sake, when I see Ronaldo's trademark goal celebration, because I've seen several NFL players in particular over the years - 2014 seemed especially frequent for this, for some reason - where they jumped up, usually in celebration, landed, and with the landing, so went the ACL in the leg they landed on. You just wouldn't expect it but that's what happened.


That's so basic. He barely even jumped at all.
