Tinotenda Kadewere has received some much-needed good news on the injury front and will avoid surgery on his right leg, and could return for RCD Mallorca earlier than expected.
The 26-year-old Zimbabwean forward suffered an injury to the quadriceps of his right leg in training, forcing him to miss a historic Laliga debut for RCD Mallorca versus Real Madrid two weeks ago.
Although the Zimbabwean had two options for his recovery, it was initially thought he would need surgery to repair his broken quadriceps, but it has since been revealed he would not need to go under the knife, with the forward already commenced his recovery process.
Mallorca and Lyon have decided that the striker opt for a conservative treatment and could be available for the month of January.
Surgery to repair his knee injury would likely have taken longer, considering the recovery period. An operation would take him out for at least four months and possibly longer
A conservative treatment plan could see Kadewere back in action in around three months latest, and therefore able to return before the end of the current campaign.
The Zimbabwean has already begun his rehabilitation work in earnest and is working hard to return as quickly as possible.
He was recently spotted in a positive mood cheering on his teammates from the sidelines in RCD Mallorca’s 1-0 win over Almeria last weekend.
